I am wondering how you got the sky worked out that way. The choice of fabric is the key factor here. It is beautiful and great work!

The pattern for this piece was part of the Pictorial Quilting lesson by Wendy Butler Berns. She recommended using medium blue fabric. I laid out various blue material and picked a few pieces to use. After I sewed the pieces together I wanted a lighter shade on a few pieces so I got a fabric marker pen and made white dots on the pieces which lightened them. I will post the other art quilt I made using just the cloud material for the sky. Since it was cloud material I wondered how it would look as a whole cloth background.
