Block #1 done: Deana's Quilted Barn

Can you see my flying geese?  There are 22.

 
I finally finished my first block.  The silo is paper-pieced.  It has 154 pieces in it so far and will have more when I complete it in another section to be added to the bottom.  I painted the top of the silo with fabric paints and did threadwork for the tree and bird.  I will maybe add some leaves later because I want an early autumn look.  The barn is paper pieced also.  I added the hexagon shaped window after rule #2 came out so this window would match the second block.

SO MUCH FUN!!!

I really enjoy looking at your block. You have created a work of art. What a talent you have, and share it so willingly.
