    Hope you had a lovely Milo, and I am sure you have had a fantastic 2 1/2 days :)

  31. O.M.G. How did I miss this?!? Your House quilt is AWESOME!!! What a wonderful finish. You know I love everything you make, but this is special. Thanks for sharing.

  32. once again I am put to shame by my friend Maria the quilting wonder. I love the finished quilt. It is the bomb......

  33. Whoa, the 88th Street quilt is gorgeous! I love that you used fabrics from pretty much the entire color spectrum, but not placed in a way that screams RAINBOW. I also like that the houses themselves kind of look like cottages in a little country village, but the number of them and the grid layout suggest an urban setting. Very clever!

    I'd love to see this on Kollabora, the crafting website I'm part of! They just added a quilting section.
