"Salmon River Run" art panel completed

I finished "Salmon River Run" today. I am donating it for the Denman Island Memorial Society silent auction on November 13. The money raised will support the first natural burial site in Canada.

The quilted art panel is 6 feet long, so taking a photo of the entire length is difficult.

I am very happy with the narrow bias binding which molds to the curved edges of the panel.

The stamped salmon image is surrounded by quilted pebbles and lines of blue water.

Another salmon image.
