    Fusible Web Goats-Your Advice is Needed

    Hello,

    This is my little design.
    I have a question for you. Do you think the grass should extend to either side of the inner border?
    Thanks for your help and I can't wait to hear what you have to say.

    Yes, unless you want them to look like they are standing on a hill top.

    I agree with sandybeach--continue the grass to the borders.

    I think so. It would look better...in my humble opinion.

    I also agree with Sandybeach. Now it looks like they are standing on a hill top. Having the grass extend to each border anchors the goats. Outstanding job on the goats.

    I agree the grass should extend across the background, unless goats on a hill top. If they on a hill top I would place another hill so you would know where they are.
    I like the design.

    Yes, extend the grass to border, and maybe applique a daisy or two in it. Nice work.

    I agree also with the other girls, maybe continue the grass longer on left & shorter on right as you have it but continue to edge.

    Yes, extend to the borders. Very cute pattern, love the fabric used for the goats.

    Well I disagree. Goats DO stand on mounds. I think it's more interesting as it is.

    I already answered in the other post - but have to answer again. I would make the quilt a little taller and make an even taller mound, maybe several layers with grass on top, for the goats to stand on. The expressions on their faces are adorable. It's as if they're saying - see where we are? I love this!

    I'm with Dunster. Especially if the MT stands for Mountain goat. We see mountain goats along along the highway here in British Columbia and they are always perched on the mountainside, usually on ledges or on outcroppings. I think it is perfect. BTW, great job on the pattern.

    Wonderful pattern!!! I like the outcropping idea. It'd be nice if the grass went all the way to one side, with the other more of an abrupt stop, almost like an overhang.

    I like Neesie's suggestion - perch them on an outcropping JMHO

    I agree re not having grass go all the way to the edges and I like the outcropping idea, but I would have a tiny bit behind their legs or going up a little higher behind them on one side. That would give it a little 3D perspective.

    it doesn't bother me, they can actually be standing on a mound so it's fine. your choice.

    Your little quilt is so cute, yes, I would extend the grass. This made me smile.

    DD has several goats & they do like to stand on something higher than the ground. As suggested by others, maybe make the grass higher on the left side, lower on the right so it does appear they are standing on an outcropping. The fabric for the goats is perfect.

    DD's goats are named Fudge, Oreo, Kibbles and Bits.

    Unless you want all eyes to focus on the grass... it should go to the edges of the block. I love your fabric choices.
