I’m pleased with how well my points came out for having to sew so many HSTs for the thistles or bear claw flowers, or whatever they are called. I’m still mulling over what to do with these blocks to give them that “me” touch.
And here’s the house block:
To say this isn’t my favorite is an understatement. I think the colors have some issues going together – perhaps it’s just too many colors in one block given the simplicity of some of the prior blocks, and the cat doesn’t really stand out because of the orangey tones of the stripe fabric. I like the flag in concept, but it could do with some scaling down perhaps (although nothing says “I love America” like hanging a flag big enough to block out the sun by your house – perhaps this house is in Texas?) (note: Texas, please don’t hate. I love you and your big hair, Love, The South, aka Sisters in Big Hair).
I don’t know that I’ll be redoing it, but perhaps it’ll go on the back of the quilt. I did get another set of trees for another “filler” block, but I decided to keep those as 3 separate trees instead of one big tree block so I can scatter them throughout the quilt.
