I added the sidewalk and stairs and it looks good. I did not add a lot of details because these areas would be in shadow. I took it apart and am starting to sew the buildings down from the right to the left. I am checking one last time that they are straight up and down. I know that canal houses are crooked, but in my original photo they do not look that crooked. From that perspective they did not look that crooked. Plus having them a little crooked will just make it look a little off like it was a mistake on my part. Other views of canal houses really show their crookedness so maybe that will be for a future quilt. It will be great to get the houses sewn down. The parts have be flapping around and sometimes fall off when it gets moved from the table to the wall. I spent 10 minutes yesterday looking for a piece that fell off. That was a big hint to clean up the room.
Of course now I have to come up with a title. So far I am thinking about "When the dark night seems endless."
I have nixed the title my husband came up with for my red and white house quilt. He wanted "Houses of the Holy." I am thinking about "Ain't that America."
Linking to Nina-Marie.
Thanks for reading.
