What an awesome and fun quilt, Lorraine.  I can't imagine being so focused on such a big undertaking.  It is wonderful and your talent is as huge as your spectacular quilt!!

Lorraine, that is impressive!  When you say "see you in October," are you saying you are coming to the WA retreat and will be bringing this along so we can see it in person?

Oh my Lorraine, you are coming along with your adorable widdle houses quilt top!  They say "slow and steady wins the race" and you're showing us proof of this!  Looking forward to your post in October.

I keep coming back to this thread. I finally decided I really DO want to do this, even though it is well past the original post date. It was the though of all that paper ripping that kept me out. I decided to buy some of Carol Doaak's foundation papers to make it easier. I WILL start this. Just not today.......

Piecing my little houses into rows now, trying to muddle through layout...

In other news, my little houses caught the attention of my friend who happens to be a writer, and she mentioned them in one of her recent essays, here

Amanda - what a sweet write up.  I loved reading it.  What a special friendship you have and your quilt will be even more special now.

I've made my first tiny house! Photo is in my gallery. It is so cute! And my 12 year old thinks so, too!

And it it DONE!!

Officially started 13 April 2013 and worked on it off and on until completed 2 November 2016.  A total of 929. Although to be fair didn't worked on every single day. It's about 96 x 79 largest quilt I've ever made.  Too big for my machine. Will give to the long-armer. Sure that's going to cost a "pretty penny".

But worth every penny! That's totally awesome. I love it more than the Dear Jane I started twice in different colors. Your houses are so much more interesting. Wow oh wow!

Wow!  Wonderful quilt!  Inspires me, too, to dig out the Widdle Houses again.  Great work.
