Buildings and Trees
I used some dark blue tulle to add some shadow to the side of the buildings, and I used a contrasting thread to paint in the lines of the edges of buildings.
This challenge required us to use a large floral print. I fussy cut some of the flower pieces and used those to depict trees around the buildings.
I also used the dark tulle in the sky to give the impression of a darkened, smokey sky, since the bombing occurred over night. It is twilight in my quilt.
The red yarn in the front is from a "boo boo" that I needed to come back and address. I tie red yarn to safety pins and put them on the quilt at a location where there is something I need to take care of later.
