Christmas Cottages Wally


I designed this wall hanging for my back door entrance for the holidays.
I made 3 of the cottages and Eileen and I exchanged one.
It is ready for quilting but I actually have no clue how to quilt it.
Ideas please my blog friends.
I purchased some gold fabric bows and I will include those later after the quilting is done.

Sorry, quilting is really not my field. But the cottages look fabulous!

Am blog-hopping my way through Chookyblue's SSCS list to see who else is playing along.

Totally adorable! I'm not much of a quilter, but if you want to try some fancy stuff, I see stars or Xmas trees in the green border, and shingles on the roofs, stuff like that. But there's a lot going on with the houses, so maybe just anchoring them in the ditch and putting in a detail or two.

I love it! You could go several different ways with the quilting.
1. Stiple
2. Bows
3. Houses
I can't wait to hear what you decide.

I'm thinking you could stitch in the ditch in and around the cottages, and if you wanted it a bit more filled in, maybe hearts on a vine in your borders. :)

Oh this is going to be adorable! Great idea for a door hanging! You got some good suggestions on quilting already.. I don't have any beter ideas. I'm going to be stuck on mine too!

Your houses are great - little snowflakes would look good in the borders - and/or stipple/SID in the blocks.....

What a great way to set them. I love the idea. I'm not sure how to tell you. I quilted my fall cottages by quilting them each individually like they were a real house with lines and squares and then stippled all around them.
