My House and Neighbouring Houses in a Quilt Block
I made this block for Julie's "Neighbourhood" traveling quilt. The middle house ... the yellow one ... represents our house and the others are similar to the houses on either side of ours. I included a representation of me in a red coat on my scooter, because I do a whole lot of scooting and I added a little bit of garden on the other side of my house. I used the "Dwell" pattern (from the Simply Retro book by Camille Roskelley) for the houses.
I realized, too late, that I made a mistake. My signature peace sign fabric on the door of my house is upside down. Oh, well. I can be a little topsy-turvy myself, so it's fitting.
