The waterlily continues......

Oh how I love this type of quilting! It is a process oriented procedure to make the art quilt using Ruth McDowell's techniques. It's like designing each step of the way...the pattern, fabric selection digging through vast stash & scraps, auditioning choices, precise and tediously piecing (but a fun challenge) and each piece is different. No 2 pattern pieces are the same. FUN! I can't wait to find out if I can design my own pattern from some picture I have been taking of flora. But for now, I will finish this. I want to add a pieced border that will compliment the look...we''l see. Right now the challenge is getting the right "look" with the color of the water lily flower. This is tough :)
