Progress




I sewed the sashing and cornerstones together this weekend using the small brown check as the gold was way too distracting. I can't decide if it needs some borders, maybe a narrow muslin inner border to match the background of the houses. I don't know what would work for the outer border. Any ideas?

I actually, or so I thought, ran out of the yellow I used for the windows. I decided to put a small dark check in to indicate one house had its lights off. I had pieced that house and sewn together that row when I found more of the yellow! Decided it wasn't worth it to take things apart, so there it is.



These are fabrics I've been auditioning for the Doll Quilt Swap. I've always loved reds, yellows,and greens together and as it turns out my partner does too. Maybe a little log cabin or an Ohio star?

I LOVE this quilt! I am going to have to make one for myself. And little houses would be a great idea for a mini quilt! Hmmmmm .....

Your homespun house quilt is so neat looking. You must of taken the extra time to cut straight. It is hard using homespun fabric when the straight line is visable. I love you blog!
