More Construction

Once we decided to speed up the number of houses we were making, the inspiration returned to get this quilt finished!

Here's are Sandy's (no blog)



And mine...



The neighborhood is really taking shape!  I've decided that I'm going to embroider the window panes on all the windows.  I did a few of the houses this month, so will just plug along until I get them all done.   I think it really adds to the look.   Also, if you remember, I was kind of upset with myself for making so many of the windows dark.  I think that by adding the panes it gives them a bit more "life".  (We'll just pretend that the owners are sleeping).


I thought I'd throw in these last 2 pictures to keep the inspiration going...


Now,

Now, head on over to see what the rest of the contractors have been up to.  


Come back next month on the 15th for the reveal of all 12 blocks.   (Not put together tho..don't get excited!)

Toodle Loo, Anne

Oh my, these are so cute! Wish I had joined the sew along! Will put this on my wish list when I have some free time! I love your dark touch you've put in there, widows, walls, or roofs...it all works well together! And love the panes you stitched in...it does add interest. Way to go! Can't wait to see them all put together!

I absolutely love your neighborhood! Seeing your quilt makes me realize again why I love house quilts so much! I think the colors you chose work well together and I like the added touch of the window panes. I am hand quilting a red and white schoolhouse quilt and I have quilted in the panes on the windows also. I love the look. Happy Stitching!

Great houses! I just love the homespuns! I think your window panes are perfect, Anne - some people work swing shifts and sleep during the day ;>)
Cheers!

How fun that each house is a little bit different than the next - what a show stopper it's going to be!
