When I plan my houses, I always lay the fabrics on my worktable in the places I will use them. So here, the blue is the sky/background, the yellow is the body of the house, and the rest of the colors are windows, doors, chimney, tree, etc. After I get to this stage, I try to make sure my fabrics aren't too much the same. I go back and make sure I have fabrics with prints of different sizes (all blender types would be too boring / predictable / bland also).
But then I happened to look over to see that awesome green I bought on Sunday and I thought, well what the hell... let's go for it. So I started moving fabrics around to see how far I could push this?
The only fabrics that are the same in both designs are the background, the roof and one window.
I am in the process of making step-by-step demo pieces for my class at Quilted Threads next week. There's one space left. Will you fill it?
