Get In The Hole!

I have finished my first ever quilt. My Art Quilt group had a swap as their monthly challenge. I posted about it a couple of weeks ago. I scored a native seed pod/cone and some thread from Belgium.






Initially I was planning a 'space' theme. This went out the window when the sun dyed fabric didn't turn out quite as dark as I thought it would. Okay, I thought to myself, don't panic, we can go with a 'Sea' theme. I left the fabric on the table. Alan passed and commented that it looked like a golf course.








Over the last couple of weeks I have half watched a lot of Golf on TV. Whenever anybody tees off some yobbo yells out 'Get in the hole'. This became my theme. On the Golf Channel they draw a yellow line indicating the line the ball is supposed to take on its way to the hole. Nick Faldo commented that he has never seen the ball go in when they do this. The hand stitching is representative of the yellow line. I couched the Belgium thread in place as divets.




As time and my skill level was limited I kept this first art quilt simple. I really enjoyed the whole process. I'm sure it won't be my last.

Well done Trish...glad to see you were on course and scored an eagle on this quilt ( I am not sure what that is but it sounded good). I would rather have had a birdy though....you should have a little birdy on there some where....hehehehe...no it is just perfect the way it is...

This is cool ... I love the golf theme heaps, and I especially love how the project worked itself out, it seems so much more awesom knowing it developed itself progressively!

Fantastic Trish. You must so pleased with the results. As a quilter, all I can say is there goes the rest of your life.

Great first effort. Are you going to sell it or keep it.
