The quilt I received had 3 Koi that were positioned in what reminded me of a recycle sign. I couldn't figure out what to do with that! So I went with the number 3. Three fish led to the three petals in a trillium. It is hand appliquéd, trapuntoed, and machine quilted. I used some Inktense pencils to add a bit more shading in the petals and leaves. There is also some hand embroidery for the stamen.
