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.
