Hillside Houses

My last 3 Hillside Houses blocks are complete.

And just like that, I have a completed top!

This QAL was so fun and so unlike any quilt I've done before.  If you missed it, it is not too late.  Check it out here.

It has been fun to see everyone's fabric choices, including some Christmas houses.  And wouldn't haunted houses be great!!

Now how in the world should I quilt this?

Thanks for stopping by!

We're back! And an Aloha Quilt finish.

 It's been a couple of weeks since my last post because the family and I were on vacation.  We went on our first cruise.  It was so much fun.  Nice to get away with just each other and no devices. :)

 Since I was going to be away and unable to work on my projects, I decided I needed to be "productive" by having some of my quilts quilted while I was gone. A fabulous idea because this was waiting for me when I got back home.

Remember this quilt?

I really loved how it turned out, but I wasn't happy with the size.  Too big for my wall and too small to really snuggle under.  I wanted to make it bigger but wasn't sure how. 

I finally decided to add a border of flying geese with lots of the background fabric to keep it light and then another border of that gorgeous blue.  Perfection!

I'm so happy I decided to make it bigger.  My friend Cyndi quilted it all over with flowers.  Now it just needs the blue binding and it will be ready for snuggles.  

Thanks for stopping by!
