soo soo cute! Much smaller than the ones I made. Was it hard with those tiny pieces?

Libby said...

I've made 3 blocks of my own, after seeing your earlier post of the "house" quilt! I"m thinking about keeping mine small for a wall-hanging..but they are soo much fun to make! I still wish you would do a tutorial (with all your free time!!HA) I felt like I wasted alot of fabric with the way I did mine! Your quilt is going to be GREAT!! I love those blocks!

The Pugs said...

Your quilt is shaping up to be absolutely ADORABLE!! Will you give us some hints about making our own? Have you come up with all the house patterns? Or are you copying them from somewhere. SO stinking cute, and I love they they are just set in simple WHITE.

LyndaG said...

Thank you for your comment on Old Red Barn -- I have to give you credit after following your blog all summer, you certainly influenced my break from highly traditional fabrics and quilts. And your little houses have added to the design for the matching bumpers... and must get busy as my niece's due date is next Sunday!

craft-crazed said...

Have I told you how much I love this?!?!?!?! well... I DO!

I made 2 quilts over the summer (both from your tutes) and I just wanted to say thanks!! you can see the squares one here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=320385.0

I Love Baby Quilts! said...

I love this! It's like a little gnome neighborhood. You should call the quilt that: Gnome Neighborhood. It's kind of alliterative.
