My plan for this quilt is to use more detail to make it resemble an actual sycamore, rather than just a generic tree. I'm challenging myself to work with a range of 5 values, rather than 3 as I have in previous quilts.
Here's an inspiration photo I took of a sycamore.
Here's the quilt so far. It's kind of hard to tell what it will look like, because there are lots of big white gaps in it still. I will be filling the gaps in with a second color, just like a sycamore has both gray and white bark. I haven't decided on the second color yet, but I'm considering green. I just need to make sure that there is enough contrast between the blue and green to show up.
The Columbus Modern quilt guild is hosting a UFO challenge and I'm hopingit will motivate me to get this project done!
