Size 11" w X 14 " h

 


Artist's Statement:


"The sweet summer breeze caresses my face, and small waves on the pond gently kiss the lily pad."







Techniques:
The water background was created by machine piecing strips of silk fabrics.   The printed cotton flower and lily pad raw-edged applique was fused to the pieced water background.   Quilting was done using the machine free-motion technique.


Materials:
 
Silks and cotton fabrics were used.  Threads used were nylon invisible thread, cotton and rayon threads (Sulky, Isacord, and Maderia).  Batting used was Thermore polyester batting.
