Free motion stitching and fabric collage of the Swan and eggs beside a secluded garden pool. 11" by 14". bound by the same fabric as the backing. I used my sewing machine programed stitches for the swan's nest. I was influenced by the gardens at the 'Master's Golf tournament". I printed the swan on fabric from my computer after manipulating the photo. Between all the stitching, the swan, the vegetation and the rocks have a trapunto look. I also used two strands of threads on a lot of the quilting.
