Welcome to the Welcome to My House Blog Hop! I'm sew excited that Just Let Me Quilt hosts these fun hops throughout the year. I have three upcoming hops in the next few months so I decided to make three "house" quilts for them. Here is the first.
My son Roland LOVES to draw mushrooms. I'm not sure why (Mario, perhaps?). Anyways, I decided to make a mushroom house. As soon as he saw it he insisted that when I was done with it it needed to be on his wall. I love that he enjoys art as much as I do.
I had a lot of fun quilting this quilt. I did mushrooms in the border. Come back Friday for a tutorial on how I did the border!
The door has a heart in honor of my kiddo.
Little mushrooms and grass quilted on the lines in the batik. I love it when the fabric "tells" me what to quilt on it.
I knew the house needed a mushroom smokestack on the roof too. And it just seemed to me like there should be some dormer windows in the mushroom cap.
For quilting the red print I simply stippled around the dots.
Here's the back. You can see that I quilt pretty densely. That's what makes it fun for me!
I'd love to have you join my Machine Applique Adventures Facebook group. I put links to all my blog posts in the group so it's a good way to keep track of what I'm up too. I post inspiration on Mondays, Free Motion Quilting on Fridays, and projects on Wednesdays and Saturdays. I also love to see what you're working on.
I hope you get to quilt today!
