    I made this same quilt several years ago! I had 107 different pieces of fabric in it. It was a chore to gather all the fabrics together but turned out to be a beautiful quilt. Did you machine quilt or hand quilt? I hand quilted.

    I absolutely love your quilt, so much to look at and the colors are great. A house quilt is on my some day list. Thanks for the inspiration.

    I love your quilt. My stack of things to do has had the pattern for an age and a half. You give me ambition to pull it closer to the top of the stack.

    Very sweet - I love house blocks! It's nice to know someone finishes their UFO's : )

    Kudos to you for putting the blocks together. I have a few that I made and the patterns for the rest but they are at the bottom of a UFO pile somewhere.

    I love your calendar quilt. Was it a pattern or did you just make up the designs. It is really neat.

    Absolutely inspiring - I love the way it uses different houses AND different seasons! I would never be able to let any have that one!

    Thanks for the link! Boy I wish more patterns were able to be downloaded instead of copying and pasting into a word document. Sigh. It's free so I guess I should shut up..... LOL
    Keep smiling, it makes others wonder what you're up to!

    Ashamed to say back in 2000. I was just learning to quilt and faithfully listening to Simply Quilts on HGTV. So I got the pattern from HGTV intenet. Called Round the Block. The fusible web was way too stiff but surprisingly, that washed out when I washed the quilt. I embelished the quilt with ribbon for the maypole, some buttons for doorknobs and I found snowflake buttons for the winter sky. I also found soe faces and put a few in some of the windows of the houses.
    Jesus knows all my imperfections yet he still loves me. Amazing!

    I don't know what I'm doing to download. I did learn that I had to resize the pic.
    I wanted to show everyone the pics from the Grand Rapids Quilt show. I took over 250 pics but stuck with how to download. I keep getting an error message and think I need to resize them all??If you know, please guide me. Those quilts were fantastic, superior, awesome!!!

    Think I also have this pattern, glad to see someone made one - maybe someday I'll use some of the bits and pieces in the stash and make it too. Great job!

    I used to have a JoAnns not far from me and the pattern had all the fabrics selected so I found them all w/o problems. Now I have moved to Charleston area and no JoAnn's unless I drive to Columbia. We do have hancocks but not the same.

    You guys are wonderful! I cannot compare my work to what you have shown here. I am all puffed up but do not feel deserving. Thank you.
