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…
