I decided on the purple this morning. It's pretty intense but it highlights the houses and that's what I want. I put it all together which was pretty much like doing a jig saw puzzle. Good thing I like puzzles. I have started quilting. I have done around the letters of HOME and IS and have quilted the top left house.
The light is not very good in this photo but you can get the idea of how it will look. The blank space in the middle will be filled with names or words.
I will probably bind it with the same yellow as on the roof of the house on the bottom right.

This is really cute. The back ground choice was great.

The purple looks great. Love how it's coming together. I can't believe how productive you are. I'm soooo slow.

I love it. I, too, retired after being an elementary teacher for 27 years. I would gladly come help you clean your sewing room but there are many miles between us. Thanks for visiting my site.

I love the houses!!! The blue sky is so pretty and the purple background looks great. I love your layout too.

Wow, you're fast. I am still agonizing about how to put my houses together. After a week away, I checked in to see you go from house squares, to lettering, to a complete quilt top -- in just a week!!!
