The photograph of the cliffs that Hilary posted when she chose the colour made me think of the cliffs at Lyme Regis and the fossils found there. I decided to 'find' my own fossil ammonites in hand sewn trapunto done on a commercial fabric. I hand quilted it with seeding and added some machine quilted ammonites. The latter should have taken just over an hour to do, but in the end I spent five hours sewing (in the wrong colour), unpicking and resewing it and I thought I would never finish in time, despite having spent two months on it. It was very difficult to photograph: the photo above gives a good idea of the colour and the one below shows the trapunto better.
