City Progress Report

t
Here is a progress picture of what I did today. There are a couple of things I would change if I were starting over. The purple and orange polkadots would change places with the dark purple building beside them. The purple would look more like a shadow and the windows would show up better on the dots. There will be more in the gray area to the left and more at the bottom. I think the black and white sqares will look fine when the center is a bit bigger.

That looks great, very much like art. I think you've done a great job and it looks like it would have been a fun play. Thanks for the support re:supermum!!

the B&W check works really well with these buildings. You're doing a great job of "copying" the picture..

I have to say that that looks like a work of art to me. Like Molly said, great interpretation of the picture. Oh, I get v. jealous of such creative people. Well done.

I absolutely LOVE this one. Your colors are so vibrant and the way you use contrast keeps me coming back time after time. Great job and I can't wait to see it progress.

just catching up on blog reading. Your cityscape quilt is looking good and all from a picture in a book. I don't know if i could do something like that.

Your village quilt looks great. You certainly got that quilt done quickly.

So will you make another with those changes?

Thanks for dropping by my blog. It's not the work of others that has inspired me - rather the creative energy all around me when with creative people.
