I love the style of Poppy Treffy, and this is styled after her house design. I love the roof and double chimney. I'd forgotten chimneys on the other houses I've made so far, so I went back and added some. Can't forget to embroider swirling smoke coming out of them.

I didn't think it would be possible to get tired of making baskets, but I just sewed them up for the last 3.5 hours or so, and I'm officially tired of them (for the moment!) I'll have to switch back to houses - or tea cups and cupcakes - perhaps for a border for this quilt? (fancy purses go with tea parties, right?!?)

I like this block a lot, but I was way off in size and my trimming is all wonky... I had to add the additional turquoise border on the right and top to make it the same size as the other blocks (which are also smaller than designed, but they all finished at the same (smaller) size.)
What a very LOUD quilt this is becoming! In a good or bad way though??

Not a huge fan of this one - don't like how I made the bold red area swooshing across the center. If the diamond pattern was replaced with a smaller scale floral, I think I'd be a lot happier. Has too much of a 1950s diner feel to me. But, it's doubtful that I'll redo it, so, here it is. Block #3!
