Almost got it
You tend to drag shapes down instead of continuing them along the same path, and none of the background in areas on the left was black, so you have a very visible border on your tile.

I think you leave things too sparse and undetailed; in this quilt, almost all you can do is texture. Plus, every tile should really add more elements, rather than continuing most and ending a few.
Re: Almost got it
I know, I just don't know how to think in terms of adding in new elements. Don't ask why... because I dunno.

Texture is great, but it's not really one of my strengths and as such, whenever I try to texture something, it tends to look messy/crap/worse than what I'm capable of.

As for the black areas, probably my eyes & monitor's fault there... really dark colours throw me and almost always look totally black to me... until they get into the quilt, then they look brighter. :/

I don't see why I must add new elements though. Some people create new stuff, other people destroy. >:)

Seriously though, my theory is, if it ain't broke, don't fix it... generally because I always seem to make things worse if I try to add anything.
