What doesn't show in this photo are the clear, white, and pearl beads scattered across the watery splashes. The beads are subtle, but does give the quilt surface a bit of watery sparkle.

Headed to LaConner Quilt Fest
This quilt, a tribute to the removal of dams on the Elwha River, has been juried into the 2013 LaConner Quilt Fest. I am pleased about that, though I am not satisfied with this quilt itself. It doesn't have enough contrast for my tastes, and though I wanted it to be clear that I was representing the Elwha River, I don't like the dark strip across the bottom with the micro stippled writing. I wish I had carried some of the strands of water into the lettered strip. Oh well, too late now.
