It remains 16" x 16", and it basically contains the house and just one tree.
I'm so much happier with the leaves on the tree! I moved the house up a bit and added another layer of grass so the empty area on top is much smaller. Now it all seems balanced. What else? Oh, I changed the colors on several pieces. The yellow was just one color too many on this one block. The blocks will contain many colors in my scrappy quilt, but I prefer to have the colors in each individual block harmonious.
I need to thank all of you for your ideas.
The swing is an just an idea. It hasn't been ironed in place. If I keep it I'll need to drop it a bit lower. The house looked so deserted and lifeless!
To keep or not to keep? What do you think?
I'm also considering adding some bushes or a pot of flowers to the front of the house. That would involve some tiny pieces, but it can be made quite manageable.
Again, what would you like to see? Leave it alone? Add some color?
Ideas for other blocks are coming in.
Please join in with your ideas.
