Venice bridge quilt in progress

Last month I started working on a bridge scene from Venice.  Mary and I visited Venice about 15 years ago.  I painted white fabric with green and blue paint for the water since the canal water is a blue/green color.  I cut apart the water fabric into strips and stitched them onto a quilt sandwich of muslin, batting and backing.  I also used some painted fabric for the blue sky.  I used fusible appliqué to attach the buildings and the bridge.  Next I will do quilting on the buildings and the bridge.  Then I will add some confetti leaves in trees on the left side.  Still more work to do but I like my progress so far.  Keep having fun sewing and quilting.  Donna
