    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)

    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    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.
