Tone it down

Yes, another bandwagon to jump onto.  I did start the Scrappy Trip Around The World, but only done 4 blocks!!  Oh well, what's another project?!  Tone It Down by Moda Lissa.  What I love about this a-long is that you don't have to use a solid for the background.  I am a bit tired of that I think.... I love, LOVE the ones with scrappy Low Volume background blocks!  So off I go hunting for some Low Volume.... Looks like I don't have too many in that department, so it will be a great challenge. 

 
Anyway, here is my first block ready to put together.  I am using Natalie Lymers Woodland range for the main in these blocks:
 
 
I just love how it came together! 
 
 
Its SO different.  I wonder what it will look like once I have maybe 4 done......

Your block looks fantastic. Low volume fabrics are really handy.
