new black and white quilt

I started working on a new quilt yesterday. Starting point is a picture of aspen which I took while I was in Minnesota.
As you know I love black and white fabrics, so I decided to make this quilt in those colors. The next step was to dye a gradation of black which resulted into these colors:

I cut the fabric into irregular shapes and placed them on top of the batting. Then I cut the shapes of the trees out of plain white fabric and fused everything together. On this picture the quilt is on top of my tables, therefore the angle is not correct but you get an idea how it looks now:
