more houses

i have completed 30 little houses and sat today and cut the fabric for the borders. i chose a red spot and a blue fabric and as you can see i have decided to mix them up rather than keeping them all the same. i am really pleased with the fabric choice, the colours work well together and i am already thinking about what else i can use them for. i have decided to use these first 30 houses and make a completed quilt, i will still make a house everyday but i think that throughout the year i will make a few smaller quilts rather than one large one.i am really keen to put the first one together to see how it looks, i hope to have something to show by next week. i may not have it quilted though as i am considering pieceing quilt tops first then doing the quilting when the weather gets better, so i can sit outside and finish them. i think this might work better for me so that i am not spending the spring/summer indoors at the machine but i will still have sewing to do.


  1. Very nice your houses and the sashings are lovely.

    1. Thank you for the nice comment, although not one of my houses is straight. All that practice and i still cant make one perfect one. Ill keep on trying though! The blue fabric Is by american primer(school boy blue) and the red spot is by Tanya whelan (dots in red).
