"On Golden Pond" by Jean Brittingham

    This is a quilt that I designed for one of my chosen charities for last year.  I donated it to our local community theatre for their production of the play On Golden Pond and to raffle off as a fundraiser for them.  It is done in all Batiks and I found a picture and changed the colors in it to look more "golden" and then used poster software to enlarge it for the middle of the quilt.  I machine quilted a ripple effect radiating from the center out to look like water when a pebble is thrown in.  Machine quilted it on my 6600P as I didn't have my Tin Lizzie yet.

Thanks for all the nice comments.  Nana, the raffle brought in $800+, so for a small area and quick raffle I think it did well.
