This project has been made far more difficult by my decision to use a black background, preventing me from using my usual techniques and relying on ones that are annoying and take more time. My goal on this section was to create as much contrast as possible with a grey logo. Up close, I don't like a lot of the color details, but the result is the contrast I was looking for. And the good news is that of all the things that I considered re-doing, I don't mind terribly at this distance, so I'm leaving them for character.

I will be machine quilting this quilt. I was testing some concepts on some practice panels.
The organization is comprised of police, fire fighters and emergency response.
There are still about 3 different variations of background designs I'm sorting through in my head. Once the applique is finished, I think it will be easier to determine which will work best since the issue is largely a matter of scale.
