New Design ( My Home Town ) Part Two

April 25, 2013

Hello Everyone

I have been addicted to this design, I am having so much fun with it. I feel the need to confess that I am truly addicted to working on my quilts. I love every stage of the process, and each quilt is a favorite. ( oh there may be a concession to that statement, I am not a fan of sewing down the binding ) I get caught up in the design so much that it wakes me up at night and I find I am calculating measurements in my sleep. ( there's a true confession ) You probably all think I am nuts now. Haha Well this little 'My Home Town' Quilt is no exception.

I have been loving the Lynette Anderson fabrics, they are full of cute whimsical pictures, the fun thing has been to fussy cut some of these as with the cats in the doorway of my houses. So Cute!

Take a look at the progress so far.

Centre Block

Pieced backgrounds always give interest. A good excuse to use more fabric. In this design originally I thought it would give the look of the town square, but I have used subdued fabrics that blend into the background so not sure if I have accomplished the town square look. I am happy with the look all the same.

Red House

You can see the cute little cats in the doorway of this house. I have made two red houses and two blue ones. So much fun.

Blue House

With the blue houses I have used the heart fabric for the doorway, 'Home is where the heart is'.

I am looking forward to working on the corner blocks and have decided to piece the background for these as well.

I am enjoying sharing this design process with you all and love to hear your comments. I would love to hear any suggestions you have along the way.

Happy Stitching

Sharon
