Fall Quilt Festival 2010


Hi -
I'm a little late pulling this together, but here is my entry for Amy's Fall Quilt Festival.

Whooville is a quilt that I finished earlier this year.  It is one of my selvage quilt projects inspired by Karen Griska.  I used the selvage dots this time to represent Christmas lights on the houses.


 
My favorite part of the quilt is the big tree, I wish I had Whoos singing around it!


a little pink house


The Bakers' house -


Enjoy the rest of the festival!
