Quilted

 
I finished machine quilting my wallhanging with the houses. I try and do the smaller quilts I make and leave my large quilts to the professionals. I'm really pleased how the straight line quilting looks and will use it again.
 
 
 
I put mine together differently. I wanted a smaller size than the pattern showed.

Wonderful, wonderful. I am a big fan of house quilts.
Also, the quilt in your header caught my attention. A very good one. I like the combo of embroidery and piecing.

A beautiful quilt Dorothy and I like the way you have constructed it and the quilting is very effective. Take care.

I love how it came out and I do enjoy reducing sizes for wall quilts. I wish they would make patterns with a black and white of the whole quilt, so I could enlarge them myself.

Wonderful Dorothy, it seems as though you quilted that quite fast, I'd still be basting.

The straight-line quilting is particularly good in that quilt - good decision! and so easy with the walking foot isn't it (assuming you meant machine quilting)?

Your version of this quilt is beautiful. The quilting is gorgeous. I also like the vertical lines. Mine is still a WIP and it will be for the whole year I guess, as I plan to hand quilt it... when all all blocks will be pieced and appliquéed... wish me luck!

Is there a pattern for this? I love it!

This was a BOM with the Quiltmania magazine 2012.
You will need their 6 magazines for that year to make it.
