Looking at Cattails

I enjoy being outside and spending time near the water. The reeds and cattails near the water's edge often catch my attention and inspire my artwork. In "Dappled" the cattails are made from strips of leather and machine stitched to the quilt top.

In "Red Skies" the cattails stems and reeds are pieced into the top and the three dimensional cattails are hand appliqued to the quilt top.

A simple idea interpreted in different colors and with different sewing methods.

How do you interpret your favorite subject?
