Whenever I work on this quilt the Charles Frazier book Cold Mountain is in the back of my mind. The book is set during the civil war and the female main character, Ada, struggles with making her family farm work and support her. I have always thought of my bride as Ada, more of a widow than a bride. In the movie version of the book sheep are a very important aspect at the end of the story, showing that life goes on and happiness can return. So for my block 17 I have substituted the elephant with sheep. The advise I need is do you think the block is to plain? All of the blocks are so full of applique and this one has the most blank spaces.
Thank in advance for any opinions,
