A small step

I've been thinking a little more about my small neighbourhood community. Trying to symbolize the fading links between its different members, I thought of drawing a kind of spiral within the house shape, a spiral centering on itself. (I drew it going inwards.)
I then carved a printing block, and played a bit with paper, fabric and paint. My quilt is slowly taking shape in my head, at last...
I wonder what you guys are doing now. Are you thinking and working hard on your 12x12 quilts? I'm very curious...

I like your block print houses! I am working on small faces. I'll try to post something soon.

I love the concept of the spiral in the houses too. I'm thinking stamped houses as well, but I'm sure mine will look different.
