Penny Sampler ♥ Small Homes
This is the initial block I’ve produced so far of the Penny Sampler that actually conveys the fairy tale theme I’m hoping to accomplish. Scandinavian Fairy Tale is the motif and colour palette I’m attempting to go by – it type of ended up getting a blend of all the colour schemes presented in the fabric choices post. Some brilliant pops of child-like shade, some subdued organic pieces (and a lot of lower volume!), and a bit of the vintage scrappy appear.
I needed this block to be like a tiny, cheery village on the edge of the woods, with some meadows of flowers to make it very picturesque. I’m organizing on incorporating touches of embroidery to some of the blocks right after the total quilt is carried out, and I believe I may possibly stitch a tiny wolf tail behind a single of the trees – modest hint of fairy tale danger ♥
I’m incredibly proud of this block (you might have noticed that I am on paragraph 3 now haha, that sort of tells you something), as it took a extremely long time for me to decide which materials to use, and the place, and how to actually give not only a feeling of depth and dimension to this village, but also to talk the setting and surroundings. I have by no means approached a block like that prior to, so this was a actual struggle…and then, I really feel, a fantastic good results ♥
