WIP Wednesday 5.8.13

WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced
I got a lot of work done on the new skyline quilt yesterday.

To recap, my original design is about angles, negative space and a little love for the Big Apple. The back is a surprise for the quilt’s recipient, with improv-pieced grey and a pop of color text.


I finished the letters and moved on to the buildings next.


The tiny pieces in each buildings are a little time consuming, so I was happy to get it all done in one sewing session. The sky is Chicopee Ladder Dot and the buildings are from some Simply Color ombre yardage.


Then, just for fun, I lay everything out on the floor.


I need to do some tweaks to get the layout just right, but I’m starting to get excited.

Linking up with WIP Wednesday and Lee at Freshly Pieced.
