A couple of years ago, I taught a session on paper-piecing these cute, adorable little houses at my Sew'n Wild Oaks retreat.
My friend Karen was making my Country Courthouse quilt at the time. We put her blocks up on the design wall and the inspiration came to Karen to incorporate the little houses into Country Courthouse.
Her quilt and neighborhood are finished and fabulous!
Feast your eyes on this beauty. Karen's quilt was magnificently quilted by Dianne Schweickert from Livermore, CA. Dianne is a true machine quilting artist.
The finished size is 72" x 82". This quilt is heirloom quality.
Karen just kept working on this quilt while making other quilts at the same time. Her dedication to this quilt never wavered, and now look at what she has to show for her efforts. So well done and gorgeous!
I'm looking forward to seeing this incredible quilt in person. This also shows you how to make a pattern your own by incorporating your personal touches into a quilt. I LOVE IT!
Karen's quilt is an absolute stunner!!!!!💓ReplyDelete

You are so right, Candace. The little houses take a bit of time to make so perfectly. From the selection of the fabrics to the paper-piecing.Delete
