House Quilt

In July, two of my friends and I had our own quilt retreat in Fayetteville, Texas. We were each making the Village quilt, from Jumble. What were we thinking? This is a labor intensive quilt.
I managed to make a few when we were together in July. Since then, I have only opened the box to cut more houses and roofs. Today, I managed to make some more houses. I now have 70 houses…ONLY 30 more to go.
In order to see an end in sight, I placed some of my finished blocks onto my design wall. They are not arranged in any particular order at this time. It made me feel a little better to see that I was actually getting somewhere with this quilt. In fact, it actually made me happy. My two friends will be working on their house quilt when they go to a quilting retreat this week. I opted out of the retreat since I had already had plans for something else on these dates. They will probably finish theirs while at the retreat.
My plan is to make the thirty house all at one time. Then, I will make the 30 roofs. Followed by attaching the roofs to the houses.
I still have to cut the sashing and borders, but I will do that when the houses are completed.

Since I had all the materials needed for making the fabric dolls for Flat Grammy, I decided to make the fabric dolls for the Meemaws. I had already made Flat Kaye, and the other two Meemaws wanted their own fabric flat doll.
Flat Kaye…based on the Flat Stanley Project. Flat Grammy

Now, the Flat Meemaws are ready to travel.
