Whimsical Houses

These wonderful hand appliqued blocks have been tucked away for some time. I started them in a class with Tonye Belinda Phillips. We are lucky to have her talent in Central Oregon. I had patterns for the houses but not a setting, which I am working on.

I was offered a wonderful opportunity recently and it spurred me to action on this UFO.

 See this awesome bird fabric? I was contacted by Joan at Vibes and Scribes in Cork City, Ireland about helping to spread the word about their wonderful quilt fabric they have been expanding in their store.  I encourage you to check it out.
  I chose this sweet fabric called Birds of a Feather.  Can you believe the shipping from Ireland was only $8.85 up to 1 kg? I think it is extremely reasonable. You may want to check out their facebook page too.  Thank you Joan. She has been wonderfully patient since my mom's hospitalization and transition to home.
Enjoy the rest of the blocks.









Thank you to those who have donated to my "causes". It means so much to me.

Have a terrific day!

  11. Funny funky houses! I love the trees. I enjoyed following the links to read your posts when you started the Houses blocks. The setting of the large house with the blocks as ''windows'' is very interesting and fun. I also enjoyed the fabric--in Ireland, how cool is that. [the Houses would be so cute in reds and white, sort of Scandinavian modern Xmas?]

  15. That is interesting. My In Laws live not far from Cork, so I shall check out that shop next time we visit. Their postage rates are very reasonable. I was quoted $8.60 to mail one fat quarter from USA :-(
