nature at peace

When doing a general dying of some fabric one piece came out looking to me like a swamp so I decided to take advantage of it and make it into a wall quilt. With stitching, roving, rawedge applique, and decolorant for the birds I brought it to life. The sun shining through the trees is stitched in hologram thread and is very shiny but doesn't show in the photo.
This piece measures 36x42.

Pat, Very nice, the giraffes and wild animals seem to be watching looking for prey. What are the birds are they pelicans? Pelicans in the swamp? I like it:)
The fabric is beautiful.

I believe the birds are cranes. Hardly pelican beaks. But they can be anything you like. Isn't imagination wonderful!

Your fabric is beautiful. It surely does have a wonderful swampy water feel to it. The birds and cattails give a point of interest to direct the eyes to. Lots of wonderful texture and I really like the white areas showing through!
