If Monet Grew Hydrangeas- finally finished

It is finished at last!I have had many many interruptions but I DID finally get this piece done. It was fun to quilt. It still needs a label but for that, it needs its official portrait done and we have a lot on our respective plates just at the moment. Anyway, here it is at last!

The completed piece 
We LOVED visiting Giverny in the summer of 1995 when our daughter performed at the Festival Interceltique in L'Orient in Britanny . While she was dancing, we visited Giverny and the Normandy beaches . Then we joined her for the end of the festival. The memories of that trip are still VERY fresh in all of our minds. Wish I had had longer to soak in the beauty of Giverny. I would LOVE to visit in iris time :-)Anyway, IF Monet had grown Hydrangeas- this is how I imagine they might look allowed to grow"wild", which , in the case of Claude Monet, would LOOK wild but would be VERY controlled. As I said in earlier posts on this piece, this was based on one piece of my hand dyed cotton fabric. What a happy accident!

It is no accident that I am posting today. This is WIP Wednesday and although this is now a FINISHED piece, I will share it on the needleandthreadnetwork.blogspot.com There are lots of interesting posts this week. Be sure to drop by and enjoy.
