Brainstorming….er….auditioning………

I am in need of a motif/design that will fit in the cream tone-on-tone blocks in the “Forest and Loon” Quilt…….001 (2)

Those blocks form a very dominant diamond surrounding that center portion. I need something that carries the “leaf” motif along but is different from the HST (half square triangle) blocks I just finished. A bit of thinking, doodling and cruising through my Pinterest boards, some modifications…. and………wha-la!!!! I think I’ve got it!!!!! 002 

This is my thought on a test muslin……the blocks will be marked into quadrants and on the diagonal (using a Frixion pen). The lower left portion shows a pen marked motif, above that a marked motif that I stitched over to get the “feel” of it and the other 2 (right top and bottom) are totally freehand. Yup……….it’s a “go”!!!! See ya later…………………………………

    The leaf pattern looks like it fits right in, plus also looks a tad like a big feather!
