Bermuda......Again..... Art Quilt #3

And so, I have begun the 3rd in my series of quilts inspired by my trip to Bermuda.   I have been in a quilting slump for reasons I won't bother to go into here.   I have done NOTHING and it was starting to concern me.   Today I decided to try and pull myself out and began a quilt that had been percolating for awhile, had collected fabrics for awhile and had begun a rudimentary sketch.

This one will be called  "Bermuda - The View From The Ship".   Everday when we were docked and sat on the deck, we saw this view.

 The colors were a bit more intense than this photo shows, but this is the idea!

This is what I have done so far.   I have more little roof lines to add and then will decide if there will be further detail.   Initially, I saw just blocks of colors as a vague impressionistic reference to the view.   We'll see how this plays out.   So far, I'm pretty happy with it - but - much more to do!
