The next new pattern that I want to introduce to you

set the tone for all of my new patterns this fall.

Don’t ask me where my ideas come from,

because I just don’t know!

For some reason I made this quilt some 12 years ago…

I made it entirely of civil war reproduction prints.

I love the dark muddy tones.

This is one of my signature Quilt-as-you-go quilts.

For some reason I never turned it into a pattern, go figure.

I even had a larger size house block designed & going…

But enough about my serendipitous brain!

For some reason I imagined that the little houses of these quilts

would look awesome with my popular & fun

little Dresden plates.

So, I reworked this quilt with pretty new fabrics

& also changed up the flowers to include petals of Tiny Dresden!

I started with the house blocks.

That’s where all the fabulous color is!

I made the roofs my “Lazy Susan” way.

Next I pieced the main structures.

Love, love, love sewing the rainbow whether it’s bright & cheery

or dark & muddy!

How can anyone resist?

The next step was to decide on a stripe print to build the quilt with.

Then decide on just the right border print.

Found it! Lol

The vines & leaves were quick & easy thanks to just the right tools!

Soon the appliqué was ready for the borders.

I used the tiny blind hem stitch for the vines & flowers like I always do.

For the fusible web appliqué I used Sulky 12 wt. thread as always.

It just helps my appliqué stand out.

Next was the easy part, the quilting.

Just sew the blocks into strips & add them to the foundation!

Quick, easy & fun!

This will be cute hanging in your house,

or that of a friend!

Available now at a quilt shop near you or on my website.

Stay tuned for more new patterns.

Just Keep Sewing…
