challenge quilt

This morning I finished my challenge quilt for Dyehard Surfacing, based on the challenge announced on The inspiration source for it was the pond in front of my house. There are 5 islands in it and this spring a couple of swans made their nest on one of them. They have 5 cygnets now.

I made the quilt with hand dyed fabrics and lots of quilting on it. In the detail pictures you can see some of it. For the quilt I have to make for module 9 of my C&G 7922 course I want to use the same technique for building the background and probably also for the stitching. This quilt wil be a triptych with foxgloves on it. The foxgloves will be composed of inserts and some of them will be appliqued.
