I’ve gotten the top right corner block done on the Roseville Album quilt.  This block is positioned in the bottom left in the pattern, but since it had a circular look to it, I thought it would look more balanced in the top right position?

The fabrics I used seemed to emphasize the circular look.  To my eye the block looked like it needed something?  It didn’t  fill the square as much as the others did.

I added a couple of birds and several extra dots and I liked the more balanced look.

I’m a great fan of whimsical, free design, but my type A personality seems to always take over?  It wants order and balance.

On to the next block!
