The trees are thwarting me. So far I’ve sewn one with the green fabric wrong side up, and one that was perfect until I realized that I’d made it an inch too wide. The two lightest ones are both wrong. I suspect I’ll still use both of them – they’re not that wrong.
On the “color gets the credit but value does the work” front, I like the medium value trees, but, as you can see, they do a nice job fading into the medium blue background. I’ll probably still use them, too. Theoretically this is supposed to be a “nighttime” scene, and those medium and dark green trees fade like real trees do at night.
And Mister Guy remains convinced that there is no quilt which cannot be improved by the addition of a cat, even if it already has two sewn on there.
