This last week I have been working on catching up with my Coming Home BOM project. I have assembled the centre section and started work on the second house border. Here is a reminder of the full design bySarah Fielke
The centre portion finishes about 52"
We are currently in the process of adding the next row of houses which will add another 10" to each side.
I am really enjoying making these blocks, I have had lots of fun fussy cutting creatures to live in the cottages :)
we have the rest of the houses to finish next month and then it's on to the final border, I am not sure if I will make the final border or not. When this border is finished the quilt will measure around 72" square, the final size is about 88" if I add the pieced end border.
I mentioned to a friend that I thought that would make a great size for a play/story quilt for the little ones of visiting friends and family, and she was horrified that I would let children crawl all over it!
I explained that the colours in this one didn't really go with any of my bedrooms and I really didn't want another large colourful bed quilt that would just sit unused; I thought that children would love to play on it and find the animals. It did make me think however, I make quilts because I love the whole process of making, I like them to be well used and well loved, it can be easily washed if dirty. I don't enter shows and don't treat any of my quilts as precious What do you think? What do you do with your quilts?
