Autumn Houses Completed



Labeled and binded.
I wish I could remember exactly what month I started this quilt? I am going to say that I have been working on it anywhere from 6 to 9 months.
I quilted it in the summer and waited until it became cooler to bind it. I embellished it with a few fall themed buttons.
I hand appliqued all the blocks and machine quilted it.

Now to think of a Valentine one to make. I have a " Vintage Valentine " by Verna Mosquera but I do not think it will be completed in time.

Hi there!
Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog; it was nice to hear from you. I'm so glad you did; I have now found a new blog to read:-)
The fall houses are wonderful, the tree quilt does not look Christmas-ish to me, and a quilt made from 1/4" hexagons????

I hope you work on Vintage Valentine. Maybe that would make me finish mine.
