Sheryl Meech – Water

Water our most precious resource.  We need it, animals need it and our plants need it.
In our area our water is metered and we pay for it.  We are much more aware of how much we use.
Hand dyed fabric for sky and the watering can.  Rust dyed fabric for the pots.   Small Topiary trees made from Tony snippets of fabric heavily stitched to hold them down.
Water stitched with three different threads, a white mother of pearl a silver metallic both stitched on the machine and the third thinking strips of tinsel stitched by hand.

  8. What a lovely quilt. Did you use snippets of fabrics or yarn for you trees.

  10. I agree with all the others, a lovely quilt and very effective use of threads for the water, you see it run out of the watering can…

  11. I am taken with the sparkle in the water, lovely theme. Well done.

  12. I love the way that your water sparkles and seems to pour out of the can. The pots and plants are beautifully worked and the colours are just right. A very well worked piece.
