I decided to enlarge the one wind turbine and did another cut and paste. I wanted to make sure that I changed things up from the original photo.
This is what I came up with. I still have those kissing blades, but I will deal with that when I block out the quilt.
I have a ton of fabric, but have suffered from buying small pieces of fabric in the past. So the background pieces that I am debating about are only fat quarters which makes the quilt about 12 by 20. Here are the 2 different backgrounds I am debating about. The one is a batik and the other is a fossil fern. The fossil fern gives a background in motion (from the wind turbines?) more so than the batik does. I like both of them. One thing I can certainly do is cut out the turbines and see how they look against both backgrounds.
What do you think?
I paired some lighter fabrics with the fossil fern that I thought might work for the turbines and blades. I would need to use small amounts of some others to get the shading just right.
