Happy Scrappy Houses


I started making the blocks for this quilt quite a while ago and they lay around in a shoebox for months until I finally got around to doing something with them..

The pattern is Happy Scrappy Houses by Bonnie Hunter and you can find it here.
I decided to make mine lap sized. I added a couple of borders and some cute little applique tree blocks in the corners..
 There always seems to be a stray thread that gets in the photo!

 The quilting was done on my grace frame with my Q,nique.   I used one layer of Hobbs Heirloom 80/20 and mostly Glide threads.










So that's another one to add to my Bonnie Hunter Collection of quilts. I must do a post on all Bonnie's quilts I have made, it is quite a few now. 
Next up on my frame is a baby quilt of my own design.
I'll be back soon with photos of that.
thanks for visiting my blog today.
happy sewing
Rhainon.

That looks fabulous. Your quilting really enhances it. I made one of these in June last year but did an all over pattern, maybe I need to make another and try some variety quilting. Just gorgeous.

That was a lot of work changing thread to match the different colors with your quilting. It is lovely, and you did a great job. Thanks for sharing your photos. I see a lot of thought went into your quilting design, not to mention, you piecework.
