Ready to quilt

Well, I have sewn and sewn and sewn and all of my little reflection squiggles are now firmly fixed. Time to layer this up and to get quilting. I printed the picture of the quilt top and one of the original photo and they are pretty close. I am not fussed on exactly exact in this case as the whole idea is ephemeral , unreal and abstract. I think I like it better now. We are becoming friends!The jury is out till after the quilting :-)

Quilted interpretation
A lot of licence was taken with the colours but we need drama, after all!
