Last but not least

This is the third lighthouse and I'll be stopping for now, though I've found making these smaller pieces much more enjoyable than I expected. 

It's not quite finished.  You can see that it's still in two pieces and  I will probably add one more strip at the bottom.  The lighthouse in this one is quite squat (based on South Foreland) so the balance isn't quite right at the moment, but I think that just that extra bit below the lighthouse will sort it out.

I've pieced the sky to try and stretch the bird fabric - there's barely a snippet of it left now, but it's done three lighthouses, which seems like pretty good going.
So two more seams then I'm off to contemplate maps.

Beautiful variation.
Improvising and making do at it's best.

I've so enjoyed watching these develop. You're so clever to include all the bird fabrics. It will tie them together. I agree that adding more strips at the bottom should help center your last lighthouse.
Such fun.

I like the fabric you used for the ground. It looks like the grasses the other vegetation that would be on a beach. These lighthouse pillow tops turned out so pretty!

Another wonderful lighthouse, Kaja! You did well with the background bird fabric.
