in the mood...

It has been a couple of weeks since I have worked on anything quilty. I'm currently working on a swap with two friends from flickr, LauraJay and lucyellen06. I had to finish a few other sewing related items first, but now I need to buckle down and get to work on these two swap quilts. So to get in the mood, I worked for a little while out of my scrap box. And since I can't get houses out of my brain right now, here is the result:

little red house
3.5"4.25", machine pieced, machine quilted

I wanted to try making a quilted coaster, and I'm pleased with the result, but I think it just might be a little quilt for a little while. I'm not ready to cover it up with my cup.

What a darling little quilt. I'd have a hard time covering it up too. It's so happy looking.

good morning! that house is too cute! I almost made some houses for our swap quilt but that didn't pan out. I like your wonky houses and again you've put something in my head that I can't get out! You and your darn inspiration!
I feel like I'm at school again and I'm so easily swayed from the peer pressure. What all the cool kids are making wonky houses!
