I showed you the cute little houses now these are the blocks that will be between them. This house fabric was the fabric I pulled in the 5 yard challenge. It was the inspiration for the little houses. Cute, eh?
I worked very hard this weekend to finish these two tops. This is the Paisley Party top. the colors remind me a little of The Ugly Quilt except that I really love these and the other ones were poor imitations.
I think this one will be going to DD2's friend Kara. She is the last of the friends that still *needs* a quilt and I think I can part with this. I really do love it though.
I have been working on this top for the last year, literally! It was part of Leanne's 365 Day Challenge. You had to put the rows together (lenghtwise) and write on a square every day for 1 year. I began this last January. I'm glad I did it but I'm equally glad it is over. It would be fun to do a smaller version for someone expecting a baby, if they remembered to write on it!
My DD2 told me I needed to make 2 more so each of my children could have a year of my life! My DD1 said there will be no fighting over it as it is hers. Well sorry, honey, I think DD2 will fight you for it! Maybe they can share it, LOL. Who knew?!
I was trying to decide what to back it with. Decisions, decisions. I wanted to use from my stash so when I was looking through the flannel bin I found the purrrfect piece. It is white and has cats and quilt blocks all over it and I had enough to use for the back!! I can't show that to you as it is with LTW.
