Pieceful Country Month 6

I finally got month 6 mostly done for my Pieceful Country.  As usual, I made some changes from the original pattern.  I chose a lazy version of the Snail's Trail block by removing the checkerboard center and replacing it with a solid square.  I did not make the heart block because I don't favor hearts, and the checkerboard block with stars in the corner may end up in this quilt later.  Instead of the tree with the couple standing by it, I chose to string a little quilt on a line between two trees.  I have not yet embroidered the line, but I will.  Since my quilt is not red, white, and blue like the others I may as well go all out on the change in theme.  I feel the original quilt is so busy and am choosing to add more white space to mine.  The tree section does that.  

I still may put a churn dash type frame around the tree section.  I am waiting to see how it fits in with the blocks that go to the right.

I am also still playing with layout options.  I like this one but am not sewing units together until they are all made in case I want to make changes.

I am linking up with Humble Quilt's Land of Liberty QAL linky party.

I thought I was an odd beast to not be a huge fan of heart motifs. I am glad to hear that others feel the same!
