Miami Blues!!!

QOTW had a challenge to create a piece based on the theme "The Blues". The piece had to be 24" x 36" and landscape oriented. It was due the second Saturday in September. My schedule was pretty hectic this spring and summer and I wasn't really planning to make an art quilt for this challenge due to lack of time. But, I was talking to some art quilting friends at the Long Beach festival in August and started to feel bad about not supporting the group. I knew I had started an art quilt already with blue in it and decided to try to finish it out for this challenge. Fortunately I was able to get it done in time and here it is.

I call it "Miami Blues" because it is based on a photo I took of the Miami skyline from a cruise ship. I will post more about the process I used to make it in the future. In the meantime, I hope you are having a wonderful day and as always, thank you for visiting my blog!
