Progress: A Day's Work

Despite the title, it's going to take more than a day to complete this quilt. It's a work in progress; I just started quilting the other day but haven't had a chance to get back to it yet. So far I've added a few strands of metallic thread, which I like. I'll be adding a lot more to fill in the area of the sparks. (detail photo below)
It's based on a welder, who represents the idea of doing an day's work for a day's pay. In some ways, learning a trade and working with one's hands for a living is becoming a lost "art".
