And In His Dreams He Heard the Surf Roar


28.5 inches wide x 35.5 inches long
73cm x 90cm

This quilt, inspired by Hemingway’s Old Man and the Sea, features block printing of the traditional Storm at Sea patchwork design using acrylic paints. I hand printed the blocks onto a digitally printed image that I had taken of an ancient wooden fishing boat discovered languishing on a beach in Brittany, France. The colours of the many layers of peeling paint on the planks of the boat were a perfect inspiration. I added text using inkjet transfer onto hand painted fusible webbing and embellished the words with hand stitch. The quilt is both hand stitched and free motion machine quilted.
