Quiltart Travel Challenge

I made this postcard for the Quiltart Travel Challenge. It is along the same lines as my Rainy Streets postcards but it features a prominent landmark in my town.

purple/blue/grey fabric postcard featuring bridge over river

It is called Industrial Legacy and the statement I wrote to go with it reads:

The most famous landmark in Newport, where I live, is its Transporter
Bridge, a legacy from its industrial past. There are only two other such
bridges in the UK and seven in the world, not all operational. It has a
suspended platform on
which cars, cyclists and pedestrians go, which is then pulled across the
River Usk on cables.

I have been playing with layering sheers on top of painted calico to depict
the rainswept streets of South Wales, so I decided to use that as a
background for my travel postcard. Because our prevailing winds are
westerly, we get a lot of rain!
