    House Quilt

    IMG_5100.jpg

    I thought you might like to see what I've been up to this year so far. I've made this quilt for my cousin who is getting married at Easter. He and his partner have been together for a number of years and have most things that open and shut in the household goodies department. So I thought I would make them a quilt. They are on a property and the house is over 100 years old. The quilt house is a vague resemblance of the real house!! The quilt was a bit of a challenge because I underestimated the middle part (house applique section) so therefore had to make all the blocks to fit which turned out to be 8" blocks. Not that easy to find but somehow I managed to squidge a few, create a few, find a few, and generally make a muddle of a few. But we got there in the end. I just hope they don't like it so I can keep it!!!!!
    Thanks for looking.

            Well, you are out of luck then, because they are going to love it. It will be very special sinc it is a likeness to their house.

              Is there insanity in your family? (LOL) If your cousin is crazy is the only reason I can think of that he wouldn't love this quilt. It is so pretty.

                            This is beautiful. I can assure you as an owner of a 105 yr old farmhouse that if someone made this for me I would absolutely keep it. Guess you're going to have to say goodbye to this one!!
