    I thought this was a nice Landscape and then socr8v posted hers! Thought I might embellish it--any suggestions?

    This is a clever idea. Agree that would make it even more "charming." It's very nice as it is.

    I have seen some really cute cow buttons that would look nice in the meadow and maybe some birds in the sky.

    Clotheslines loaded with your micro-mini quilts, G, would look great on every hill! I would have children playing in the foreground around a little pond, the sun shining bright and a crooked pipe coming out of the cabin's roof with smoke coming out, and dogs running everywhere! Have fun with your embellishing! It also looks good enough as it is!! :D :D

    I think it looks great as it is. If you wanted to add some extras some heep might be nice and maybe a few birds in the sky.

    They have the cutest little animal buttons they might look cute, but I love the colors you used for the fields.

    oksewglad--did you learn this technique from a book? I'd love to try one some day. Are the stitches on the top--like a crazy quilt? How do you get the curves to work?

    Thank you one and all for the wonderful comments. I like your ideas you've shared--animals I'd rather do cows (we milk the brown and white ones), and windmills sound good,too.
    n2 I don't know if I can make mini's that small--LOL!
    butterjoy and barnbum-- I purchased 2 patterns from The Quilted Lizard (Karen Eckmeier)called Farm & Fields and Autumn Hills. She calls them Accidental Landscapes. Website www.quilted-lizard.com I thought I was getting individual cutting instructions; but no she has to stretch my creativity (or somedays lack of it). One starts at the top with the sky and then freehand cut the pieces working from top to bottom. Fold under the top edge 1/4" and topstitch in place and until you feel you are done. I machine quilted the fence in the lower section with black thread. Cut the piece to the size I wanted, added the borders, then machine quilted in the sky and a couple of the hills and bound it. My friend and I did the piecing one afternoon on our "quilt day". Hers turned out great.

    Windmill, cows, & how about a few rows in the foreground of corn stalks (since you live in Iowa). That is a great little DQ.
