A wave of color

Like a wave of the sea..

One of my submissions to "Quilt National" that got passed over.  I really enjoyed making this one and spent hours and hours on it. Definitely going to persue the 'water in motion' theme in the future.
Hand and machine made with hand dyed cotton and silk. Hand and machine quilted, appliqued, embroidered and embellished. 40x38"

HI Lorie,

this is magnificent! Just leaps off the screen with such a feeling of joy and movement.

What do "THEY" know! ;)

Your quilt is just wonderful....full of movement, life, and energy! The rejection letter was really nicely written....instead Can't wait to see the other two....when are you posting them?
