I am sure he would have created a quilt of his beloved water lilies.
This is entirely hand painted using fabric paint on 100% cotton. I used a large sea sponge to create the background trees and the bushes around the pond. The lily pads and lilies were painted separately and stitched onto the pond. The bridge was constructed and added last. The details were completed with oil pastels, fabric markers and fabric paint. I used a lot of metallic thread in the pond to create a reflective quality and quilted it on my domestic machine.
