The front doors of the Huisache Grill in New Braunfels, Texas, are painted different colors. It's eye-catching. Why? Because it's unexpected, different.
When you are designing a quilt it helps to remember that unexpected touches stand out and draw the eye.
By the same token, trees don't always stand up straight. This tree, which seems to be waving, ought to be next door to the Huisache Grill, but it's not. It's miles away in Fredericksburg, TX.
