    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.

    Thanks everyone,,

    My DH has been very ill on & off for the past 10 years I wanted to create something that represented the rough waters that life can. Lead you down but. We tread them together.

    I'm glad too say he is doing well. Now

    Very nice! The effect you got on the cattails is really life-like.
