I saw a picture similar to this on a calendar. I knew I had this fabric so I then cut out tree branches to hang OVER the water (some people thought this was upside down) so they would appear in silhouette. I called it "Sunrise over the Water". The crystals represent dew drops that are falling from the tree into the water. I quilted in circles around the crystals
to represent ripples in the water. The rest is quilted to show movement in the water.
My initials are E-M-J-R. My colors are Emerald, Ebony, Mantis Green, Jade and the binding is the exact color of a nail polish by Nicole called "Respect Our World".
There was a saying on the calendar by Lao Tsu: "If we let go of what we are, we become what we might be." I like that and used the dew drops or crystals to represent that saying.
Prize or not...........I really love this quilt!
