April Village Continued

A few weeks ago, I posted images of this piece after I had block printed it. At that time, I was not sure I would like the results.
Yesterday, I washed out the glue gel and this is how it looks now!

I was initially hesitant to add the printing to a piece I already liked a lot, but I am pleased with the results now that the glue gel resist is gone. It seems even more playful! This piece is rather large - about 60" - almost square. I look forward to the quilting, even though it will be a lot of bulk under the machine.

Ooh! This is awesome! And the quilting can be quite simple, as there already so much going on! Bonus!

I think this is one of my favorite of all of your pieces. It reminds me a lot of the Russian influence in the Eskimo villages of Alaska...
