All those blocks at the bottom of my design wall that I told you to ignore in yesterday's post? Do you wonder what they are? I thought I'd give you a look.
I'm doing this year's Thimbleberries Club block of the month in half size and making a few other changes. To my taste, the original version has waaaaaay too many contrasting sashings, filler pieces, and borders, so I'm trying to simplify it a bit and adding a few more blocks since my version is small. I think this will turn out to be a largish wall hanging. Here's where I'm at so far:
It looks to me like I have three more spaces to fill. In the space to the left of the house, I think I'll make a pine tree block. Down at the bottom border, I'm considering another heart to balance out those up at the top. And I'm not sure what will go in the third small square underneath the door of the house, but it will need to be something simple because that's not a very large area. Then I'll use the background fabric to sash all of the blocks together. I may end up adding a bit of applique if there are spaces to fill. And I still need to "dress up" the house a bit, but thought I'd wait until the rest is done to decide what it needs.
Thanks for stopping in to visit! Have a good Monday! (Or is that an oxymoron? Have a good one anyway!)
