Beside the Still Waters

Proudly displayed at the National Quilt Museum Exhibit, 2017

88"x 44"  2008

When I was 12 my family got a ski boat.  I loved to race it, and water ski - what wonderful family times we had.  Many of those times were on "Stone Lagoon".  So I had Gary take some panoramic shots of the lagoon from the 101 side and set out to make this quilt. 

Techniques: Mosaic Picture Piecing foreground, painted water & sky with multiple tulle overlays, threadwork & heavily machine quilted.

All wall quilts have a "sleeve" attached at the top back for easy hanging using a dowel, or curtain rod.
