Progress on the House Quilt

I have the houses in large sections with 5 more rows to assemble. Here is a close-up of the large, center house.
I couldn't find fabric with a picture that was the right proportion for the window, so I drew in a cat. I found clip art of a cat silhouette and printed it out in several sizes. When I chose the size I wanted I traced it onto the block using my black Pigma pen. It adds a little something to that otherwise blank space. Here are the sections so far.
It's getting there. With my time so limited I have to sew in small chunks of time instead of marathon sessions. It all adds up and I am making progress.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Wow, it's coming right along. Looks great, I can't believe your almost there! Seems like not long ago all those little houses were just a stack of blocks in a basket.

  2. What an awesome quilt - the ultimate house quilt!
    Thanks for sharing,

  3. Thanks for your comments. It has been quite a journey. I am looking forward to the end of it.

  4. Wow such amazing progress! The quilt is going together nicely =D

  5. This is amazing! I bet you could just spend hours looking at it!

  6. Thanks for stopping by and becoming a follower. I really appreciate it. I am in love with the scrappy look of this project, but I am so over the need to make tiny, scrappy blocks.

  7. This is beyond amazing! I can't imagine how much time and love has gone into this. I can't wait to see more!

    1. Thanks so much for your sweet comments. I have another two rows done. Three left to go. Stop by again.

  8. I forgot to ask - can you see the ones that are backwards? I'm betting that you REALLY have to look to find them - kinda like an "I Spy" - ;))
