Blogger's Quilt Festival

Today is the first day of the Blogger's Quilt Festival put together by Amy's Creative side!  I hope you go over and visit all of the wonderful quilts! 
Here is my contribution.
I called this quilt "Little Houses".
  It was inspired by a Triangle MQG member's full sized quilt.  I made this doll quilt for a swap our guild did this past June.  I had a very hard time giving it up. 
This was the first quilt I quilted on my new sewing machine Babylock Sofia.  I love the effects of the pebble quilting. 
I used some of my special scraps for the houses, my favorite Ashe gray for the bacground and border,  and an Amy Butler dots fabrics. 

I love the straight line quilting in the borders and the happy dot border. 
I paper pieced the houses from a pattern I drew on the computer.
I especially loved the back Kaffe print.
Well thanks for stopping by. 
 Dont forget to visit Amy's Creatvie Side to see the other entries!

Keep dreaming...Colleen

BTW here is the quilt I got in the swap from the same person who inspired Little Houses.
I love all the DS QUilts lovliness!  It hangs on the door of my office where I can look at it every day.

Such a sweet quilt! I adore tiny little houses. It's on my to-do list. I love the pebble quilting on the grey! It makes it look like they are on a little cobblestone street!

The pebble quilting works wonderfully well with the houses. Thanks for reminding me that just because the pieces are straight, the quilting needn't be!
