Admit it. You have a closet that has an ugly door or no door at all. Maybe you have a window that needs a curtain. When making a long, rectangular quilt, one must choose her animal carefully. To be honest, I was trying to find an excuse to make a seahorse quilt because I am madly in love with these curious creatures. There are so many cool things about seahorses: their horse-like faces and long little noses; their tiny fins; their bony armor.
Seahorses can be as small as a fingernail and as large as a banana. Many types are monogamous for life, some greet their partners with a little dance and a change of color. Male seahorses carry the developing seahorse embryos in a kangaroo-like pouch. What’s not to love? The aqua-green and orange colors I chose for this quilt were inspired by Italian movies from the ’60s. (Think café awnings and ice cream parlors in picturesque little fishing towns on the islands of Capri and Stromboli.)
This seahorse curtain is made from 100 percent Kona cotton. It measures 30 x 79 inches.
