Koi In The Pond Quilt

 It was wonderful to walk around
with camera in hand
 viewing
all the beautiful quilts at the 
Tucson Quilters Guild Show
My eye was drawn to 
Koi In The Pond
a group quilt made by The Honeybees
as a donation to 
Quilt For A Cause
I have a friend fighting 
Breast Cancer right now and was particularly moved
by the generosity of this group.
 Pattern: Fractured by Kathy Doughty
from September 2009 Issue Down Under Quilts
Machine Quilted by Arlys Bjorke
 The blue and white fabrics are from Japan, 
including some Kimono fabrics
 The addition of 
little spots of 
novelty fabrics
with orange fish,
 and the embroidered Koi
contributed by Judy Smith
were well placed 
and brought brightness to the quilt.

Nice job ladies!
and thank you :)
