I decided to use a photo that I had taken on the Needlework Cruise to New Zealand earlier this year. I took the photo as we were leaving Napier, that wonderful Art Deco town.
I don't take many industrial photos but I chose this one because it seemed to have some interesting reflections and I am still trying to work on them. I had to crop a lot of the photo though because we are only working on an A3 sized quilt.
Cropping the the photo made it look more Industrial and not so scenic. I also got a better look at the reflections as well.
I used Vliesofix to fuse the shapes and quilted it without finishing the edges. I think that it gives a more realistic look.
Here is my finished quilt.
