Ugly Duckling into a Swan

Recently I visited a blog where the owner was showing all of her beautiful hand dyed fabric. (I have lost the envelope with her name on it and will post as soon as I figure out who sent this to me!) She also had some not so great. She called them ugly. So she decided to offer the "ugly fabric" in a giveaway if you left a comment. Well I won one of the pieces. Personally I did not think it was bad. I have made worse!

A couple weeks ago, I found it in my stash while looking for something else. I immediately thought of grasses and water and knew I had some great fabric I could destroy to make this piece sing.

I added in the reflections with some dye pens. Now I need to quilt in the water and reflections. I am really excited about the progress. Just wanted to give a look see of something I am working on. It has been a while since I have posted since life has been crazy.

Update: Katy Quilts is where I won the fabric!

Hi Patty, I think this was KatyQuilts who had the give away on her wordpress blog. It looks like her fabric. I had hoped I would win it but your design is wonderful. There is no ugly fabric.

Thanks Janice! I will check on it. I have quilted it since this photo and need to post a pic. It was the inspiration for the subsequent two pieces I made for AAQI.
