I am giving away one of my earlier mural pieces ( 25.5" x 33.5"). This was designed for The Catskill Mountain Quilter's Hall of Fame 2007 Quilt Show. It was to feature the 'Celebration of the Paper Crane' . The two swans represent the Island of Japan - one is filled with ocean life designs and the other is filled with designs of ceremonial Kimonos. And framed with the year's Hoffman Challenge 'Cranes' fabric.
The swans are cross stitched on 18 count white Aida clothe with DMC floss, hand dyed floss, silks, metalics and beaded. The piece is hand quilted by my mother (I wasn't quilting then), Arlene Vrooman, who is a member of the Catskill Mountain Quilter's Hall of Fame. She is featured in the books 'The Catskill Mountain Quilter's Hall of Fame' by Janis Benincasa and 'The Unbroken Thread - The History of Quilt Making in the Catskills' by Steve Hoare .
