    I love Monet and Swans. I designed this quilt in stages.
    I machine pieced the water and vines handing on the left.

    Then I added the swans, water lilies and reeds and cattails.

    There is a further description on my pages.

    This is corny, by the 2 swans represent DH & myself going through life together.

    cattails were yarn couched.

    Waterlilies were individual petals fused and thread painted.

    Drop dead gorgeous. And not corny---sentimental.
