"Oriental Meditation #4: Lotus Pond"

in. x 69 in.)

"This is the 4th quilt in my 'Oriental Meditation' series.  The arrangement of the blocks - the log cabin variation, 'courthouse steps' - and the color choices and placement remind me of a lotus pond.  The border and the quilting designs - lotus flowers, dragonflies, lily pads, ducks, and turtles - carry that theme.  I used silk fabric for the block centers, hand embroidered the black lines in the center, and hand appliqued the black lines in the border.  The rest of the quilt was done by machine, including the wonderful quilting done by Sue Foster."
