I made this for a fundraiser auction in the Seattle area - for Friends of the Cedar River Watershed. I learned the technique ffrom Elin Waterston and Jane Davila's Art Quilt Workbook--which I love!

Beautiful job on this piece.  The design elements are very evident.  Repetition of color and shape create a lovely sense of movement. You can feel the "upstream" desire of these salmon.  Even the use of value and hue create rythm in this piece.  Congratulations on a job well done.....Jim D

Beautiful quilt and for a great cause as well. Love your choice of colors/fabrics for the salmon!

Marvelous! The colors really grabbed my attention at first, but the movement and the details really held it. Nancy
