I’ve hit my first detour from my list of priorities! I’ve made an Inklingo (School) House block to go in a ‘Heart & Home’ comfort quilt. The blocks in the quilt are 6 inches finished. The Inklingo block finishes at 9 inches. I added sky and a field of daisies to enlarge the block. It’s over sized now at 13 inches so the person who’s sewing the top together has plenty of trimming room for what she needs (12 inches or so).
Here the block is plain:
Here it is with a couple of embellishments laying on it:
Which do you prefer? If I embellish it, I’m thinking the windows look a little plain. Should I embroider window panes? I’m concerned that with the plaid any window panes may look awkward? Any suggestions?
’til later, Jillian
