Play Houses


Thanks to Victoria, I've been playing with my scraps for the last month. Here's what they became, a two-sided wall quilt.



I pulled pieces randomly from my scrap bin, and enjoyed what the "scrap fairy" chose.



One psychological theory says that when a house shows up in a dream, it represents the inner psyche of the dreamer. Hmm.

These are gorgeous. A great way to use up those scraps.

Hey LeeAnn, There is not one thing about this quilt that is not absolutely fabulous!!! Well done! And as for the crazy quilt? Well I would tell you, "you're not crazy" but I machine appliqued, machine quilted and then put the veins in 300 leaves on a quilt. (I'm not sure how much credibility I have in this situation.)
Have a great Day! Happy quilting!

Gorgeous! I can't believe you made it into two quilt. I can't decide which one I like more.. both are equally striking.
I love the little girl jumping rope.

WOW! I love wonky and absolutely love the floral sashing and lovely spin on the wonky theme with the houses. I love the fussy-cut girl and the secret of dreams and houses. Just found you and can't wait to study more!!!!

Your 2 sided house quilt is delightful! Great job!
As for dreaming of houses, I do so all the time. I have 4 houses that I repeatedly dream of so much, they seem real to me, although they aren't. Usually they are bright and sunny and in good shape, but this last week, they were dark and in need of repair... Me thinks it was a rough week!

Love your "scrap fairy" houses! I can't believe you made a 2-sided quilt - what fun. It is beautiful. Wow, it just goes to show what 15 minutes a day can accomplish - impressive!
