Christmas House

Just finishing off a small quilting sample…. as you can see I have beads pinned to the top and they need to go in the windows as candles and then it’s pretty well finished.

I actually designed this house to go into a larger quilt which was sold as BOM and I decided to take the house block and make one for each season…. So this is a Christmas house for my friends in the US.

The windows are illustrated and appliquéd on top of the bricks.Dsc06103

The stars around the border are quilted using a triple stitch….it gives a more detailed effect to the quilting. The tiles on the roof and over the front door are illustrated as is the front path…. effectively I’ve made my own fabric to enhance the appliqué.
