Planning the Lights Quilt

 As soon as our final Four-in-Art theme was announced for the year, I knew what I was going to do.  This fifth quarter theme is Light.  Light falls under the year's theme of Urban. 

 My previous quilt showcased a skyline silhouette of Milwaukee, and I wanted to continue to explore that idea combined with the idea of lights.  Here are a couple of preview shots to whet your appetite.  The final reveal will be November 1.
This one is a bit of a test.  I traced the skyline backwards.  And when I sat down to do the sky quilting, I think I forgot how to FMQ.  Really, its been a couple months, and it wasn't pretty.

Here's the base for the "real" one.  We'll see how things go.
