River Progress

I added more "bits" to the river. It only took me a couple hours to glue the pieces and about that long to free motion stitch around the edges! I like the contour and the depth much more. In fact, I liked it so much that I appliqu├ęd the river to the piece!














Then I began working on the bridge. I drew several sizes of this bridge. It reminds me a little of the bridge that Monet painted so often. A few years ago, I was in Giverny, France and visited Monet's home and gardens. I couldn't believe how small they actually were! I will also tell you, I could see how they are beautiful any time of year!


















At any rate, now, I'm deciding if I need the additional rails as I don't think that they are visible from far away; but, perhaps, it would be good to include them for those of us who like to get our noses as close to the quilt as possible! Also, I could put more white water under the bridge to show it off more. . .hmmm more to ponder!

  1. Looking good. Terry, the link on TQS site wouldn't let me view your blog. I just typed in your address and that worked. Just thought you'd want to know.

  3. It's looking wonderful! I think you're right about adding more white water under the bridge.

    1. Nancy, I moved the bridge down to a lighter part of the background. There was also more white in that area and it does look better. I so wish I could figure this out earlier rather than at my slow later speed!!!--Terry

  4. Woo hoo! Nice progress, I like the lines of the river now too. Isn't it great to really have the opportunity to try different things and decide what you like? It's fun to follow along as well. :D

    1. Monica, It is great to be able to try different things. I MUST remember to enjoy the process and not get hung up when I feel like no progress is happening!!! Thanks!--Terry
