I ultimately decided on the Wisconsin Gas Building in downtown Milwaukee. It has beautiful Art Deco lines and a flame on top! This was important in my design plan, which you'll see in a moment.
When the flame is red, its warm weather ahead
When the flame is gold, watch out for cold
When the flame is blue, there's no change in view
When there's a flickering flame, expect snow or rain
And so I give you: The Gas Building.
12" x 12"
Batting: Thin polyester with Pel-tex for stabilization
Thread: Clear Poly and Bottom Line
Fabrics: What ever caught my eye and played well together.
My next post will have the details of how I put this one together.
*As I write this, no label. I got a cool new printer for Christmas that I thought I could print color on fabric. Right now the fabric is jammed. Hoping to remedy that soon.*
