So I laid them all out on my large table. Then I made a paper-pieced Amish house, also from the Block Lotto site, and snuck that into the forest.
Hmm, I realized that I had gotten lost in the paper-piecing process and made the roof purple instead of black.
So I fixed that and made another one of red against black. I thought the paper-piecing was too FUTSY, and I made another with out the paper -- just liberated style with an idea and some sewing. That's the green one.
I spent some more time moving blocks here and there, and there and here, and I got tired of the whole thing. So I packed it up and put it away.
Maybe I'll make TWO quilts, one with black backgrounds, and one with black foregrounds.
Maybe I'll make more trees. I don't have many 12" ones. And/or I'll add trees between the trees in the seam like 3 dimensional flying geese [you know that method?].
Maybe I'll put spacers between all o r some blocks. . . . it was too much to think about after a long retreat!
Today I bound, labelled, washed and dried it.
This will go in the Guild collection for the neo-natal unit. Will any parent want this for their child? I like it, but will young, stressed parents? Oh, well, they'll have plenty of choices among quilts.
This is my Finish #3 for 2011, and I also have participated in three exchanges of blocks.
