Little Houses Progress Part 2

Sunday, August 23, 2015

I'm so loving this fun quilt along.

I dare say that Kaaren's way of doling out the next parts with lots of lead time is good for me and others too. I'm still cleaning out the camper and restocking for another Mr. GEQ and myself getaway at the lake this coming weekend. So yes, this post is scheduled and I'll read your comments when I get back to civilization.




Between cleaning out the sewing studio as well, I've found some new threads that I thought I had bought hiding behind one of my tables waiting for me. I've  been slightly overwhelmed with fruit and veggies all coming in at the same time. There is only so much refrigerator space available to hold them while I'm visiting with family. I made slow progress.




I did find the tedious chore of rotary cutting and leaning over my table to be a bit of back ache, but I got through it. But that is just where its at for me. I carried on.


I'm so liking this quilt and hoping its not going to get really big. You know? Its not likely to get machine quilted unless I start giving myself deadlines on finishing things and that so gets in the way of creativity! You know how large my UFO list is?


Sorry about the poor light in these shots, but you get what you get when you can get it. I prefer to shoot my photos and video's outside, but sometimes its just impossible.

I'm off to carry on with Part 3. Happy Quilting everyone!

  4. What a difference the border makes - the houses just pop with the addition of the border. I too hate working over a table rotary cutting because it is hard on the back. What I've done is have a sheet of wood cut to the size of my stove and I put it on the stove. The rotary mat goes on top of the wood. The height is perfect so that I don't have to bend over to cut. It reduces the stress on the lower back!

  9. Your fabrics look great together. I'm working on this too! I have the houses together and have the little strips all cut. Maybe I'll get this step done this week and will get ready for step 3.

  10. Your houses look so happy - wouldn't it be fun to live in a neighbourhood where the houses were all fun colours like this? Hope you enjoyed your mini-holiday.
