'The Tulips Are Coming'

The winner of the Feb 15th draw for one of my hand dye painted fat quarters is Gill Watson from Glucester, UK. Congratulations Gill. As spring is around the corner, I thought a tulip image would be appropriate. Enjoy your new panel Gill and we would love to see a photo of what you make with it.

For those of you that are looking for something special, I can create a panel based on a photo you provide or as in the case below by a description. Kim who commissioned the piece, talked of missing hearing the sounds of rushing water and the crunch of leaves as she walked along the river bank where she lived before. She also wanted the image to include a covered bridge and fall colours. I believe Kim will be completing this panel by adding pieced borders which I am looking forward to seeing.
