    Love your little Tea Shop. Looks like it might sell scones with jam and cream in them, like they do in Devon in England. They have a sign that says Cream Teas and when it comes you have a whole plate of scones freshly baked with strawberry jam and real Devon clotted cream. That brought back some lovely memories. This is just a beautiful quilt. Love it

    These are fab. WOW, you are an inspiration to me. I've been working on developing a pattern to show the four houses my father lived in.....and I had to make a trip back to Amarillo to take more pictures of two of the houses....my memory just wasn't quite great enough.
    I do love your cottages and your choice of fabrics. I hope mine comes out well, but it won't be nearly as great as yours. Please post more as you proceed. :D

    Melissa your blocks are coming on fast!! On the Quilters Cottage where you noticed lack of contrast, although the door is pieced (I think!!) - Couldn't you do a fancy stitching in a light thread to highlight the outline of the door to make it stand out, and applique a letterbox or make a half window on the door? - I like embellishing tee hee :lol: :roll:

    Good ideas Izy!!!! Should I do stitching on the door itself or around the outside of the door? Or maybe applique a door frame around it? (Oh the door is pieced.) I had thought about putting a window on it but wasnt sure on that.

    Hey Elle!! Those windows are so fun! I got all the images from clip art in Microsoft word program. I had to reduce them all down quite a bit. The one with the quilters, I printed directly on the inkjet fabric and the tea one and kitty one I printed on regular paper then used my light box to trace onto the fabric, then colored with pigma pens.

    Wow, Melissa--I am not around for two days and you just take off!! All three of your buildings are just adorable and I love it that you are taking the time to put cute little things inside the windows!! How fun!! The door does look much better with the stitching around it and the window on it. I love all three and cannot wait to see the next one!!

    Henry I bought it at a LQS, but it went out of business a couple of years ago :evil: Look on page 2, I put a link to the Company's web site, they sell them at the same price I bought this for 3 or so years ago. It is 6 seperate patterns. The first 5 are for the individual houses, the last one is the borders and alternate blocks and finishing up.

    Wow Melissa, I am impressed I thought it was provided in the kit, it really makes the block that little touch, well done!!
