I had just a bit of time to sew this weekend with all the goings on...rehearsal, wedding, anniversary. Thank so much for the anniversary wishes! We are planning for many more!
I put my mid-century house blocks together into this wall quilt. It's a bit bigger than the space I wanted to hang it, but I'll find a place. In between the wind and the rain I tried to take a photo of it for you.I changed my idea for putting these blocks together and decided to go very neutral and architectural with the setting. I wanted the shapes of the houses to be the focus.
I love the interesting house blocks that the bee members made for me. Thanks everyone! This is going to find a special place in my house.
I have 4 quilts basted now and I've run out of basting pins. That must mean it's time to do some quilting. Hopefully this week will go smoothly and it'll be full speed ahead!
This is so beautiful - love the houses! And the different shades of khaki are perfect!!
Run out of basting pins - that certainly is a sign that quilting is up next. Have fun! I love the setting you've done on your mid-mod houses.
I love it! the houses are realy original.!!!
A belated happy anniversary!
And I love this special house quilt!
This reminds me so much of the neighborhood of Eichler homes I grew up in. What a great "blast from the past"!
What a great neighborhood you live in!
Great houses! They brought to mind the Frank Lloyd Wright house we saw in PA - Fallingwater! Very fun!
Stunning houses - I agree with Debbie, all very FLW - but the nearest I've got is my Lego Falling Water!!
Love the linen with all these little hidden pockets of color everywhere!!
Love the osnaburg!
I can do two large or 1 large and a couple of small quilts before I run out of pins.
Frank Lloyd Wright came right to mind - love this quilt!!! And funny someone else mentioned it, I was kinda thinking Eichler too (my elementary school was smack dab in the middle of an Eichler community). I ramble - just wanted to say how much I love it, and love the photos. I love seeing quilt construction as much as the finished quilt!
Charley Harper lived near me when I was growing up. His house was very linear and open and...cool as heck. The colors you've used and the houses you've "built" remind me of that house and Charley's work. Very cool, Miss J!
Love those house blocks! Your setting is great.
Have fun quilting.
Love the houses and the fabric you used for the background. Celebrated my anniversary last week too. 38 years. Woohoo! Congrats, BTW.
I'm so happy to have been part of this quilt Jacquie...many more wonderful anniversaries!!

This is one of my favorite bee quilts ever.

Such a lovely quilt. What is the background fabric?
Oh, it turned out great! I love the way you put all the houses together. Great job!
Love it. The blocks, the setting, the over all look. This quilt is going to be awesome.
