Helinä's DYB-rr block

Helinä sewed 6 blocks in the colors of the painting on the photo above.
The painting is made by a Finnish painter Akseli Gallen-Kallela ( 1884).
It was her idea to get a CQ quilt in this misty atmosphere.
I didn't find it easy. It would have been much easier for me to get paint and a brush.
After all this must become CQ !
I have embellished this block as good as I could and I hope she likes it, the size is 15 cm square, 6 inch.
If Helinä doesn't like the black cat it is very easy to chase him away :)
The painter didn't see him in the high grass but I did. LOL

Oh Ati I think it is wonderful!
I'm certain that Helina will love it but if not it can come and live here, black cat too.

A good interpretation Ati, but not an easy one I imagine!

Your block is a wonderful blend of the colors, and I'm sure the black cat will stay! I love that painting.
