I had a number of firsts this year.
I decided to enter something in my guild's quilt show. I've been in the guild close to 6 years and was never interested in creating something for the show, but after stumbling across the quilted acrylic canvases, I decided I had finally found something I wanted to submit.
I took the watercolor painted applique last year and wanted to take it up several notches. I had only been dabbling with it. Meanwhile, I had been holding onto 3 canvases that I had dubbed Caribbean Waters. The two techniques suddenly collided.
