It's a Home!

Being that this is a small kind of quilt, I wasted little time in quilting it up!  I've enjoyed constructing each tiny house I've made and when I decided to make a larger version I knew part of the fun was going to be in the quilting.


HOME
16" x 16"
Not every section was touched with thread!  Some was left to stand on its own and I didn't feel the need to get completely crazy with the quilting!



I used straight lines for the siding and border.  The roof is a grid made up of rectangles to resemble shingles.



The sky is a swirly something or another!  I honestly don't know what you can the design, but it works!  Stippling was placed around the border of hearts and a straight line/pebble design completes the inside border. 



The backing fabric was the perfect find in my stash to complete the 'picture'!  I almost feel like I should have used some of this fabric for the inside of the windows...it got me thinking!



Total whimsy with this one!  I enjoy playing around with fabric options and of course, paper piecing always makes me happy!
