Last weekend I went to the Farmers Market in nearby Elkhart Lake. There is a great coffee shop there called "Off The Rail" because it is situated right by the Railroad Tracks. So after getting some coffee, I took this photo and liked it so much I decided to use it as the inspiration for my next art quilt.
Today I loosely sketched out the crowd and the building....I want this to be sort of casually done...not straight lines on the bldg or perfection here or.....
in the people here.
I have the basic background finished and quilted it measures 30X19 inches. So now I am ready to add what is furthest away.....which will be some trees and an attached building. I will most likely eliminate some of the sign clutter around the scene towards the left.....and maybe add some things...but that is the joy of making it your own. Hope you enjoy this new journey with me.
