Shape Sorter Street Quilt

Popular Patchwork asked me to design a 'houses' quilt!

Quite a few wonderful houses quilts have already been designed over the years so it was a tough challenge to come up with something 'original'!

But the creative juices started flowing and I came up with this:

65" x 64"
I knew I wanted a modern, simple design, and as I started thinking of bringing in porthole shapes to the houses, they reminded me of the wooden shape sorter toy that my kids used to play with when they were small!


And so 'Shape Sorter Street' was born.

It was a lot of fun to make, matching up the shape of the trees with their corresponding houses!

Apologies for the poor indoor pics! It was a dreadfully dull day when I finished this quilt.  When I get the quilt back from Popular Patchwork I'll take some better, outdoor pics!

The April issue of Popular Patchwork is out now!
