The full block.
This gives a little better idea of how it integrates into the block next to it.
See that turquoise-y block in the middle (in the first pic)--right under the BIG loon? It just wasn't the right blue for a NorthWoods Lake -- too mediterranean. It just never fit with the blocks around, nor the overall scene it was seeking to depict, so I swapped it out for the bluer blue in the second pic. Ahh -- much more harmony!
Now I can move on to the next steps ... stitching down the applique pieces and doing some free-motion embroidery.
