Building Challenge

Architecture begins where engineering ends.
Walter Gropius
What I worked on this weekend...  I belong to an Art Quilt group that meets monthly.  Each month we pick a topic and create a related  art quilt.  Past topics have included- roses, birds, circles, sky and fruit.  This month our topic is 'buildings'.  

In the past, I have always made journal-sized quilts, but this month I decided to venture in a new direction.  I have canvases of various sizes so I decided to make mini quilts to attached to them.

I like my building in process, but the bicycle needs more work.  I think it is the background of the bicycle that doesn't work. 

What do you think the bicycle needs?
