So I played around with that moon block, turned it left, turned it right, looked at the quilt on the pattern cover, looked at my picture of the Buggy Barn's finished 1904, and decided that the moon block didn't really bother me in those projects so it probably wouldn't bother me in my project once it was all done.
I connected all the blocks and couldn't stop looking at that moon block! UGH!! I think the problem came down to the fact that the moon block was a primitive looking block, and just not my style.
So another messy appliqué day later and this is what I came up with.
How about an owl?
I got the pattern here, from Stitchy Britches. I played around with the size some and made a few minor changes but basically that owl pattern came from that blog. The person who posted the pattern said it was free and that it was a late 60's crewelwork pattern. I have no idea if I'm breaking any sort of copyright laws by using that pattern, that's the problem with the internet.
So the blocks are all back together and I like the looks of my owl, I don't think it's a distraction, just a nice addition.
All that's left is to put on the outer border, which is pieced and ready to go.
This was my 499th post, next up, my 500th! Sounds like something worth celebrating!
