Anyone recognize the skyline?
This was a non-secret going away gift for a member of my sew-n-tell group. She & her husband are moving to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.
I am really please with how 12 gals did this 1 quilt & our fearless leader was particularly inspiring when she chose the oddly shaped sections - mine was shaped like Nevada (The one with the 2 airplanes in the sky). I was afraid that mine was a bit to sedate when I saw the others - but the overall effect is nice & all of the pieces work well together.
The best part - my block was 100% from my stash! There are definite shadows - so I went right to my "cat fur" fabric stash & used cream/brown, black/gray combinations.
It was nice to see this quilt & the gals prior to the departure - but they did not need anything more to pack!
