    "Liberated" Barn for DQ Swap

    I've been experimenting in "liberated" piecing. It takes a little foresight to put one together but this was fun. Only wish I would've used a little more contrast in windmill and sky. This should be inName:  003.JPG

    I think it's adorable, the windmill blades seem to be rotating.

    That is absolutely wonderful ... a very realistic funky farm scene! You got the old windmill just right (yes OK, a little more contrast would been nice). And your detailing of the birds, grass?/hay? growing up above the fabric, and straw hanging out of the mow is fantastic.

    I'm sure in your farm community this will be a hit. Is it heading to the school fundraiser too? or?

    Can you say "fabric paints" or perhaps markers? You can add some shadow and contour to the windmill to make it pop out a bit. Still, it's pretty just the way it is.
