M's bedroom is pink and green (not my favourite colour combination, I have to say) so I pulled out what I had in my stash. A healthy stash means not having to go far when putting together a pull for a quilt! I had already decided on using Camille Roskelley's Dwell pattern from her book Simply Retro.
The pattern is quite brilliant in how you construct the houses and after doing the hardest work- all the cutting and arranging for each house- the piecing was fairly easy.
It is backed in a Robert Kaufman print called, I believe, Park and Ride. I bought it ages ago from Sew Sisters when it was on crazy discount. I think the houses on the front and the parks and trees on the back go so well together!
Here is Dollhouses (since M is a little doll):
|All 16 houses|
|Back. I didn't try to piece it so that the pattern repeated because it is a very busy pattern and I didn't think I had enough. Next time I think I would try to piece it.|
|Art Gallery Squared Elements for the binding (in pink, of course)|
|I think this my favourite of the houses.|
|Or maybe this one.|
