    That is going to be a fun, happy quilt. Will each house be different? Are you improvising on the pattern or is this one you found? Its going to be adorable. I can't wait to see it finished!!!

    Those are great. They both look like houses I'd want to visit. Keep going, I can't wait to see the whole quilt.

    Thanks for all the great compliments and I have not even started all the embroidery yet.

    Thanks for all the lovely compliments. The fabric that I used for the background is all fabric painted that I did myself and need to use them. It is working out great because I then add some nice prints. When I have completed all the blocks and there are still a few I will start with embroidery and that I am really looking forward too. I will keep you all up to date with this. I am not working on it all the time, like most quilters.
