Here is this quilt a little farther along. I joined a critique group called give me your two cents, and took some of the advice to heart. So, I decided that the sky was way to dominent. I knew something was bothering me but just could not decide what it was. The sky and the buildings were competing with one another. So, this is with the sky removed. I then painted a sky and the next picture will show the improvements. Darn, I don't know what happens when I download a second picture it copies the first one again. Oh-Well you get the idea. Thanks to the group as you have saved me a whole lot of time because I might have let that quilt hang on my design wall for a long time before I discovered what was bothering me, or worse I could have just given up and put it away for another time.

This is going to be beautiful! I see what you mean about the sky and bldgs. competing in the first one. What about a deep blue-colored background like a midnight sky?

That last sky is just beautiful and I think it is working well. Jen
