A Little Background

This is the right side of the Colorado barn. You can see the mountains in the distance. I knew I'd have to include them, but how to do that?

Actually I wasn't worried at all.  Here I've sewn two strips of fabric together - a blueish (actually this is a blue with an orange design printed over it, and a suitably pale blue for the sky.

A little judicious cutting and sewing got me to this.

After adding a few greens to suggest the scrub that covers most of the land surrounding the farm, I have this, and I am happy with it.

I love the sky. It makes me think of wispy clouds when the wind is blowing them around. I presume that does happen in Colorado. :D

That is so effective! Sre you thinking of adding the fence rails or creative license?
