And the winner is...

... the Ferris Wheel!

I have already started the process of making a quilt from this photo.  

First step:  Project the photo on the wall and trace the elements onto a large sheet of paper:


I am sure that there is a computer program that can do this work for me, but the tracing helps me get my brain around the objects in the quilt.

I am trying to decide on the background fabric.  Should it be pieced or a single piece of fabric?  Help me decide.

Stay tuned for the next step in The Sky Over Glenelg (working title of the quilt)

Pieced

I'm with Gail; a pieced background will give you extra depth.

Since you are an awesome quilter, you can leave it as a one piece background. Your quilting will shine on that!

I'm partial to pieced - but if you've got the perfect background fabric, you can always just go with that.
