A Day at the Beach–Oh, How Fashion Has Changed by Joyce Hughes

This month’s puzzle spotlights a quilt titled A Day at the Beach–Oh, How Fashion Has Changed made by Joyce Hughes of Warminster, Pennsylvania for the 2013 Quilt Alliance contest and auction, New From Old.

Materials and processes: 100% cotton fabrics, tulle netting for the water, shells for embellishments; raw edge applique stitching with free motion quilting.

Artist’s Statement

I am a self taught quilter and fiber artist. I started sewing in 2006. My first quilt was a tee-shirt quilt, which I enjoyed making, but felt limited in the ability to express my artistic capabilities. Shortly, I started to design pictorial landscape quilts using raw edge applique, thread painting. Finding a love and passion for quilting has allowed me to try a variety of new and different techniques with added dimension and texture.
