Domestic Bliss

Happy Friday!

Here is the little quilt that I'm donating to the NQA for their auction at the upcoming Quilt Show in Columbus. The deadline is tomorrow, so I'm cutting it very close.


I was going to donate the Strawberry Fields quilt form Lori's quilt along, but in the end decided to make something original. I also think it would have been very, very hard to give up the strawberry fields quilt once it's finished.

Here are some close ups of the individual houses -

Have a great weekend everyone!

  4. Wow, I love that quilt. The smile in the roof is genius. And the use of selvages, perfect!
    I think it would be hard to part with this one too!
