I finally got my Lost in London quilt for Make Modern completely pieced over the weekend and am basting at the moment, which freed up the design wall for another project. Yay! I am so happy to have the space to layout these gorgeous blocks I received from my hive mates in Modern Quilters Ireland 2015 Bee.
I asked for houses on a blue or pale background, any design and shape and to add some embellishments if liked. Some added fussy cut pieces for the windows, applique trees, fences, a swing and even a dog! In addition, there were some very generous additions to the blocks. I’m loving the socks (so cute!) and the tissue holder is very apt at the moment (on steroids and more antibiotics for sinus – grr wish it would just go away!)
Helen even sent me the dog template she used so I am going to give Harvey (that's what I’m calling him!) a brother and a dog house and fill in some of the other spaces with applique clouds, maybe a clothes line and some garden flowers. This is a happy fun eclectic neighbourhood. Any idea what I should call this quilt?
I’m loving all the colour up on the wall, it is so very cheery at the moment. We’ve had horrible wind, rain, hailstones, thunder and lightning and snow this past week – hard to believe it is March and Spring! Thank you ladies for such beautiful blocks.
