Finished...what's next??

Little Red Schoolhouse quilt all finished...
...it was a delight working on this little quilt. I hand-quilted in the sashing and borders, the doors and windows and around the schoolhouses...I think I'll let it sit here on the doll's pram for a while, till I find a nice place to hang it..
                                                                   My next quilt!
I bought a new Aussie quilt magazine yesterday and with it came a free quilt magazine....inside the free mag I came across this beautiful quilt...love at first sight!
Yes, this is the style of quilt that I love...I have lots of repros and a background fabric...ready to go!
This quilt is by a very talented Aussie quilter Robyn Falloon.
It does look a little like my Drunkards Path medallion...or maybe even a Dresden plate block..but different...you know what I mean!
I'm so excited...just need to find the time now to make a start on it...

Happy stitching....♥

  17. The schoolhouses are wonderful! A good finish. And the new quilt would be a wonderful project to start on. Dresden-like with a twist is what I would call it. Hurry and make it.

  18. Those are great little schoolhouses.

    I've admired the Blessings pattern for some time. I considered purchasing it from a retailer here in the US, but I doubt I would make much progress on it.
    It has your name written all over it. This is definitely a lovely Julia type project, and you'll create an heirloom.
    We'll be watching and enjoying your progress.

  19. Love your schoolhouses and it will be interesting to see your Blessings Quilt. I bought the pattern, made a booboo and it changed course dramatically. It is at the border stage and has stalled. Seeing you work on your quilt might inspire me to get back to working on mine.
