Happy to be Scrappy

Happy to be Scrappy

Tuesday, September 2, 2014

I am getting excited about our quilts being posted on Quiltmaker's Quilty Pleasures.  In case you missed it Quiltmaker did a post that has the materials list and a black and white picture of the quilt pattern we made.  Here's a link to that page.  Just in case you would want to make one of the quilts too.  It's a simple pattern that is quick to put together.  Our quilt posts won't start until September 8th.  And again, none of us know what the schedule for the posts are. 

In the mean time I'll show another one of the quilts I did several years ago.  This one I made for me.  I took two different pattern blocks from two different Thimbleberries books and came up with this quilt.

Houses and Trees 2008

Queen Size House Quilt
First try at some free motion quilting in the houses.

This was one of my first "figure it out myself" quilts.  So in 2008 I was already figuring out that I liked scrappy quilts. The more I quilt the more fabrics I like to put in.  If I made this quilt again today I would figure out how not to cut off the tip of the tree.  Other than that I'd probably make it just the same. 

Have a great quilty day!
