Robin Meyer made this quilt, using dark gray cloth from Uganda. She says the design is from Elizabeth Hartman's book Modern Patchwork.  
The blocks themselves have tremendous potential. 

Meyer chose to put birds in her houses. Some of the fabric she used is in my stash, waiting for me to be this creative.
The rooflines are not all the same and yet all the houses have a sameness. 

The birds are not all the same and yet they are all birds with the same background. 

The houses are not all the same color, but the ones that are, are composed with the same fabrics yet in a different arrangement. 

Alike and different. Contrast. Meyer chose an interesting binding which underscores her contrast/comparison theme.

I really enjoyed this quilt, and I am enjoying it all over again while analyzing what makes it successful.
