From the Sea and Beyond:
The Textile Art of Rob Appell
Sun, surf, and quilts may seem like an unlikely combination, but not for Rob Appell, textile artist extraordinaire and former owner of the Cotton Ball quilt shop in Morro Bay, California. Rob, who specializes in quilted seascapes, brings the ocean world and its myriad creatures to life in glorious detail..
His unique quilts combine expert machine piecing, machine appliqué, machine embroidery, and machine
quilting. Many of Rob's techniques can be found in his book, Making Waves: The Adventures of a Surf Quilter (self-published, 2010).
