Slow Stitching Sunday

It was a productive day for me.  I finished this Hocuspocusville  block and traced the last four blocks.
These blocks are some that my brother's mother-in-law started for him and he asked if I could put them together in a small throw quilt for him.  They are laying on a dark blue print that I chose to use as a night sky. 
I'm thinking of putting a white tone on tone beneath the deer to make it look like they are walking through snow.

And I added the dark blue and the white to the tree blocks, hoping this will look like a night sky and snow.  Also thinking of adding a few house blocks in among the trees that hopefully will look like log cabins.
This is a new quilt book I purchased online.  (Added it to a purchase I made at Amazon so I would get free shipping.)  It isn't quite what I thought it would be, but it has some good ideas in it.  There are a few borders I would like to use in future quilts.
