AEDM Day 8 - Making Progress

Good Morning!
I've just been working on my sunset silhouette and added a few elements to it.


So far, the trees are still just fused down. I added some trim along the skyline which looks like bushes, and a wool felt foreground into which I needle felted some colored roving. 
I can see that I need to add some irregular stitching to the foliage to make it look less precise,
 mute down the bright colors in the foreground and maybe add some subtle trees in the background.
AEDM is a great place to show progress on a piece of art, without worrying about perfection.

I also want to share photos of my favorite animal quilts
from the quilt festival I recently attended in Houston.








I hope that everyone who reads this is having a great day!

Your sunset silhouette is turning out beautifully. I like the purples and the lace-like look of the trees. Fun quilts too, and the cat drinking the water makes me grin! it's lovely to explore all the talent that is out there.

The colors in your sunset are gorgeous. My heart enjoys those transitions from darkness to light and light to darkness so much. You've captured the mood very well.

Happy AEDM!
