Default How to quilt these little houses?

I've only ever done jig-saw meandering and SID, but I don't think either of those will be perfect for this Little Houses quilt. I think that lots of straight lines would be good - do I need to use my walking foot for that and how difficult would it be? Any suggestions would be great! (the polka dots along the edges are the backing fabric)

You could sew in a door, and perhaps a window or a chimney (I don't know how big the houses are). You also could outline quilt about a half inche away from the sides and tops of the houses (I'd stop at the white line above the houses). A white on white tree in the bigger blank spots would be another idea (it could be free form because real trees are). Your pattern is really a cute set up! Love your color choices.

I would start with SITD around all the houses even making an invisible house in the white squares. I would then think about adding a round hole in the center of each house to make them into birdhouses? Really cute top!

I agree! Cute quilt - can't wait to see the "after" pictures.
