What are you most proud of? I'm most proud of the way the reflections worked and my free machine quilting round the ghost viking ship and the viking shields at the top

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Simplify the landscape to emphasis the main focus and audition as many fabrics as possible to get the colour effects you want. Too often we make do with something that is not quite right. An alternative to buying or dyeing new is to take some fabric pens or crayons, or fabric paints and make some wavy lines or vague pattern on a piece of fabric that is near to what you want to alter the way it "reads". You don't have to re-colour the whole thing, even spots will make it read darker, greyer or different.

This is delightful, I like the shimmery effect on the water.
