My initial idea was to use the black for the tree and the cream for the background. Then Julianna commented with the hope that I'd be brave enough to make the background black and I realized that for it would still fit with my overall plan for the blocks and I couldn't disappoint her :)
So let me present to you the night woodpecker:
Some points might not exactly meet, and I'm not sure about the decision to use two colours for his leg instead of one, but I'm very happy with the rest of my fabric choices and quite proud of him.
Hope you'll like him too.
