Cindy Richard – Reflections – Mirror Image

My niece is standing in still waters on a beach at Cape Cod at sunset. Her reflection and that of the colors of the setting sun are reflected so clearly in sea, it almost looks like a mirror. I tried to express this scene of reflections in my quilt. I called it Mirror image!

Technique: Raw-edge applique, free motion quilting.

Materials: Cotton batik fabrics, tulle, various threads, 80/20 batting

  7. Cindy, bravo I love your work on bringing out the reflections and mood of the image.

  8. A lovely translation of the photo into fabric. I love the colours of the water and reflected sky.

  9. Cindy, what a great work! I like the colours and the quilting. Did you first quilt the background and added the figures later?
