After making a small house and tree wall hanging a month or two ago I found myself looking for a larger project on that idea. My January American Quilter magazine arrived with the perfect project. Curb Appeal by Wendy Sheppard. Another perfect place as well to use some of my Tilda fabrics. I belong to a monthly shipment of them from The Intrepid Thread.
I have learned that when working on projects with a lot of piecing especially with smaller pieces that starch is a must. I mean heavy duty starch!
This beginnings of a tree is pretty stiff with starch. I do really love this new turntable too.
So first off I completed one of the fourteen tree blocks. I think they are really cute. I am using Moda Grunge Paper White for the background.
Next finished up were two of the smaller houses.
Then a larger house completed along with more trees and houses of course in different fabric choses.
So I am off to a good start.
It appears that the Christmas season is off to a good start at my daughter's home. The hope is the tree survives.
Her dogs behave a good deal better. The appliquéd stockings are two out of four I made for each of her children when they were babies.
