In the Reeds

The most fun part of this challenge was deciding on materials, and the hardest part of the challenge was to keep the design simple. The felt captures the soft down of the swan neck, the silk reflects the slick beak, hand-dyed fabric enhanced with some pencil for the stuffed eggs, a funky fiber for the nest, and of course the dragonflies and eye from my bead drawer. The reed shapes are echoed with quilting on the swan. This challenge was great fun.

You captured the feeling of the mama swan's love beautifully.  I love your quilt and the combination of the graphic swan and detailed background which comes around to fold in mama swan.  I love all the different textures too!
