Another go at cloud fabric

I was so excited about the results of the fabric I dyed a few weeks ago that had cloud shapes on it, thanks to flour paste resist.

Sadly, as cool as that fabric turned out, it’s just not going to fit into the design of the new art quilt I’m working on.  Now I have a new idea, and I think it will work; I used reverse applique to make clouds: this design element will run on vertical pieces of fabric on either side of the piece.

Here are a few photos of one small part of the art-quilt-top in progress: the appliques are on the right side, they’re not that clear but it’s the general idea:

What I’m thinking as a successful design element doesn’t look all that outstanding here:

But I think it will look good once I have it assembled.
