    Talking A house BOM quilt that I call Funky Town

    This is the House BOM that I sewed along with board members last year, I made some extra blocks, as well as some random setting blocks and worked on this row by row until it reached 60x80 size and is big enough for a twin bed this is the first time I worked on a quilt this way, it is a lot of fun, even if the result is a little ,ummm, random and funky, lol. I used some ideas from a quilt I saw in the McCalls magazine, I believe the name of it was America the Beautiful. I used a silky bamboo batting from the Dream Company (soooo soft) for the first time and quilted it with all over loops. Fun quilt with bright batiks.
    Thanks to the board members who chose the blocks and thanks for looking.
    Sorry, it was a bit breezy when I took the photo.

    How fun. It is so Americana. Quilting and piecing are a treasure. Good job.

    Your piecing, applique and quilting are really beautiful, as well as the colors you used! Thank you for showing us.
    Bless, O Lord, the works of my hands....
