The sea calls…

I am working on a patch for a friend to put on a quilt. She used to live on the seacoast in NH, but now lives down south with her family. We both love the sea and love celtic knotwork.
This is NOT my design, I did a google search for “free stock images, celtic seahorse”.

This was my first time blending colors by using a single thread of each shade. It kind of gives an ombre look. I just hope she likes it as much as I do!!

Materials: DMC cotton floss, mid-weight muslin.
