    My First Landscape

    This is my cousins home in England. She is visiting us in Sept. I though I would make this for her. Took Home Building class at Quilt University.

    That is so neat! What a generous thought for your cousin too. She's lucky and you are lucky in your heart. My MIL just gave a me huge stash of FQ all for landscaping. I cannot imagine using them for much else for alone they are quite ugly. Thanks for putting them in perspective!

    What a fun idea! She's going to be so happily surprised. I would be.

    Careful, these are addictive. Yours is so meaningful and will be such a treasured quilt. And of course there is the other side too, it looks so awesome just on it's own to anyone. What a great job you did. I especially love your choice for the framing fabric. It just sets the whole thing off. I wish I could see the details such as the walkway. and the side of the house for how you got those wonderful effects.

    Very cool!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.
