Houses quilt in progress

Today I finished piecing the houses quilt. I could not stand far enough back from my design board to photograph the entire quilt. I added a trees between each house, and a fence between each row of houses and trees.
Off to Thetis Island for the Denman Island Quilters annual retreat. I will sandwich and quilt the houses quilt when I get home next week.

  1. This is adorable. A clever way to use up small pieces of fabric.
