The Making of Wonky Little Houses

This is the Wonky Little Houses quilt. I made this quilt using Carrie Bloomston's pattern from the October 2018 Quilty Box.

 Normally, I take a lot of pictures when I'm making a quilt.  I must have been pressed for time, because this is the first photo I have!  So this post will be more like the quilting of Wonky Little Houses.  As you can see, I basted with safety pins.  This is how I prep quilts when I'm planning on quilting them on my Elna Quilter's Dream.

 I began my quilting on this yellow door of the center house.  I did simple straight vertical line quilting in matching thread.

 I did horizontal straight line quilting on the houses exterior walls to simulate siding, and continued the horizontal straight lines onto the rooftops.  

 I had a little fun quilting off center concentric circles around the sun and did some echos of the bumpy green tree in the sky.

 After quilting, I added some lace trim to the rooftops to give the houses a gingerbread look. Sew pretty!

 Each door received a button door knob.  

And everyone lived happily ever after.  The end.
