This artwork was inspired and made from scraps from my Whitehorse Rapids quilt.
The salmon were sketched from a selection of images I found online.
I used some beautiful fabrics bought at Bear’s Paw Quilts for each section of the coho salmon.
The salmon were topstitched with silver thread to give the illusion on scales.
The back of the quilt is just as beautiful – with only the stitching showing through.
This wall-hanging was made as a Christmas gift to my Uncle Al – who has worked among salmon for many, many years.
I am very happy with the final product.
Here is a picture of a coho salmon for comparison:
