100 block challenge squares # 19 & 20
So far today, a lot has been crossed off that list I made yesterday. Here are the next 2 100 block challenge squares. Instead of a snow house, I dug up some old landscape quilt fabrics I had from quite a few years ago, and made an English thatched cottage instead. The other square was named "Versailles" Just 4 more squares, and I can put together the first of the quilts made from them. The cottage square is fusible appliqued. I forgot to reverse the pattern when tracing it, so it came out reversed from the pattern, but it still looks fine, although, looking at the picture, the greens in the trees could have stood to have a bit more contrast. In the Versailles block, I didn't like the placement if the darks and lights, so I switched them a bit in the star points, so that they are in the same spot in each corner. I like the movement it has this way.
