Lorraine, let me add my congratulations on this AWESOME finish!!  It's beautiful and I'm truly impressed with your dedication to see it through over the past 3 years.  I know the quilting will be a pretty penny but ohhh, so worth it when you get it back and stitch on the binding.  Way to go Lorraine!!

Lorraine,  your quilt is gorgeous! So many little houses and all the memories associated with the fabric. I love that you clothespinned it to your gutters lol.

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".

 

Lorraine your quilt amazes me--all those tiny houses.  Wonderful job!!  Everytime I find a new comment on this thread, I go to my widdle houses AGAIN.  Log Cabin has always been my favorite block, but these houses have gotten my attention.  They are so darn cute!

Well I guess it's needless to say, but I pulled out my second widdle house quilt I've been working with.  This pattern draws me back again and again.  Have you looked at the date when we first started this journey with these houses? 

Would love to see more pictures.  How is your house construction going?  How many do your have completed?  How are you planning to set your quilt?  Happy Quilting

Lorraine that is just so special (and big!!). I forget about these until someone shows some, then I dig them out again. This is an excellent motivator! I just love how it looks.

IT IS DONE, Back from the long armer and binding done.  Don't know if I will ever work on something with this may pieces again, but it did it.  Thanks for the challenge.

Is anyone still building on these little houses?  I was looking at the finished house photos  in this thread.  Mine are no longer there.  For some reason Photo Bucket deleted ALL my photos!! This happened several months ago and I havn't tried to load anymore pictures.

Last week I was cleaning my sewing room and found my old UFO stack.  The last time I counted them, there were 8.  Very pleased and I thought soon I'll have them quilted. I discovered 10 more had found their way into the stack.  The next day I found 2 more in a drawer which I had forgotten. I thought I would work only on the UFO's.  Good idea?  Well it didn't work before, but I have 1 finished this morning and another lacks the borders.  The number is down to 18 instead of 20 (ouch)

I'm working on the houses again.  Hopefully I have enough pieced for a quilt like Judy made.  Her's was beautiful.  

Come on girls, get your houses out again and let's sew together and get them completed.  Happy Quilting

Topsy, as you finish those UFOs, post a picture in the "Completed in 2018" discussion forum and be eligible for prizes!

i wasn't part of this swap, but every once in awhile I make a couple of houses or trees. Right now, i am participating in an Instagram sew a long called #sewingavillage. The houses for that are much easier and bigger. I love house blocks of all kinds, but have yet to finish a quilt from any that I havemade.

LaDawn, your houses are so cute, so bright and cheery and I love the size of them!  I'm going to look up the Instagram sew a long you mentioned.  I'm not sure I will participate but I am so tempted because I've always wanted to make a quilt with houses.  BTW, I'm the one who started this thread with great intentions but making the little houses got the best of me.  I did learn a lot though from making them.  I have a small pile of houses somewhere in the UFO's that never made it.

LaDawn, your houses are adorable.  Love all the fabrics and colors and that's what scrappy is all about.

Glo, I have always wanted to make a house quilt too.  I don't believe anything ever gets the best of you.  I looked at the beginning of the thread and see you started it, as you said.  You know, sometimes I find that my best intention (AT THE TIME) doesn't always materialize, but in time, it can be resurrected.  Bring your cute little houses out and make some more.
