It feels so good to have another project finished!
You may remember that back in January
I joined the Tiny Houses from Scraps QAL.
The idea was to make 365 tiny houses from scraps
one each day.
Clearly that didn't happen.
I made 12.......
actually 14 but the first 2 were beyond wonky
so they didn't stand a chance of being on my quilt.
One night while I was trying to sleep
the idea for this design came to me.
I used one little house for each month of the year
and embroidered the names of each family member
and their birthdays in each month.
I couldn't resist using Christmas fabric for the December house :)
I used perle cotton floss to hand quilt around the blocks and
I made hearts in each of the 4 corners.
I appliqued "Home" and "Family" using a blanket stitch
around each letter
and giant red rick rack to frame it out.
(I'll admit I have a slight obsession with rick rack)
I backed it in soft yellow Kona
because it's going to hang on the wall
and I didn't see the point in a snazzy backing.
Now that it's done
I'm trying to decide if I want to paint my living room walls
before I hang this above the couch..........
I'm sure my hubby will be THRILLED
to hear about my plans!
