Koi Ying and Yang

This quilt was completed for the guild challenge in December. It won 2nd place. I constructed the fish with pieces of fabric. The shading was made with oil pastels. The fish resemble very closely a couple of the koi that we have in our pond. I made the ripples with the quilting lines.
This area has been suffering from drought. Our pond became so low that the back fins on the koi were actually out of the water. We pumped water from the well to help sustain them. Finally in December we began to get some really heavy rains. The pond is back up to full.

Τhe issuе iѕ something which too feω
peoplе are speakіng intellіgently about.
Now i'm very happy that I stumbled across this in my hunt for something regarding this.
