Ok, took out some of the blocks... this is only going to be 30 inches wide, maybe 40 or so long, so I think it WAS getting too busy. The house got changed to a wonky house instead of a traditional block, and I drafted a pieced watermelon instead of an appliqued one. I have some small 2-hole buttons I'll use for seeds. The little pinwheels above the house are now in the border corners.
I am thinking about using the navy with red and white swirly stripes (that I used in the center of the feathered star) for the border, but there's nothing close to that fabric it in EQ's files. Then I'll bind it in something dark.
The two little friendship stars on the right will have vastly different fabric too, since I'm trying to use up more of this patriotic stuff I won. I may put some little faces looking out the house windows. :) But now, is the house too big? hmm.
