Quilting the Farmington River

This is my completed "Canal Pool - Section 2 of 25" for the Farmington River Quilt Project that will be on display this spring in Winchester, Connecticut. Along with 24 other quilted sections it will become the property of the Farmington River Coordination Committee to promote conservation.

You may remember I started this project during the summer. The project specified parameters for the width of the river at the left and right edges. The fabrics for the river were provided.

I developed my section as a fabric collage, using small sections of fabric that were initially glued in place and then stitched.

Here it is as progress continued.
