Since then, I have made several "house" wall hangings using a variety of sizes, fabrics, and themes. And now there seems to be a huge resurgence of interest in house quilts. A few minutes in blog land will give you ample opportunity to make a house of any size, color, or theme. Just have a look at my sidebar and you'll see a few quick links to making houses!
So when I joined Another Year of Schnibbles, hosted by Sherri at A Quilting Life and Sinta at Pink Pincushion, I was thrilled that the first Schnibbles of the year, the January quilt, was none other than Full House, a quilt using one house block to make eighteen houses. Creator Carrie Nelson of Miss Rosie's Quilt Company, sure knows her stuff! The quilt was a lot of fun to put together using a couple of charm packs and some yardage for the sashing and borders. I finished the quilt top on the weekend.
I used Sandy Gervais' Grand Finale fabrics by Moda, and will hand quilt sometime in the future! They say that taking a picture of a quilt in natural sunlight is the best way to do it, so I headed outside on a really cold day and managed to take the picture. This is what you didn't see!
Today, the deck is totally covered with snow, so no outdoor pics for awhile!
Thanks so much for dropping by. There's still lots of time to participate in Another Year of Schnibbles. We make one Schnibbles quilt a month, so why not join us? Just touch base with Sherri or Sinta.
It's a great day for quilting!
