Song of Zadar

Even although I was one of the members of this group who suggested Transformation/Change as a theme for our work I dithered for many weeks over what to make!

Finally, a chance encounter with a holiday photograph gave me my eureka moment.

I have called this mini quilt Song of Zadar, and the full post over at Celtic Thistle Stitches will explain why and just how it fits the theme of Transformation.

Can't wait to see how my fellow Endeavourers have interpreted this theme.

  1. I love this - the feeling of sunlight on the water and concrete, and the texture you've given it with the embroidery and beads. What a great idea!

  2. Really enjoyed reading about this on your blog - the idea of musical notes from piping and steps is very intriguing!

    1. Thanks Ruth, there is apparently another Sea Organ in San Francisco but it plays a recognised tune rather than the random notes that the Zadar organ does.

      I am always inspired by the wonderful things that I see (and hear!) on my travels, so I am delighted to have finally completed this mini quilt as a permanent reminder of an amazing trip.
