Houses



I have made some progress on quilting the jungle. I am finished (I think, I hope) the houses. I sewed tiles on the roofs, meandered the skies, outlined the houses, doors, windows and animals. I also did some sewing on the grass and driveways. I tried lots of different things there. Now I am wondering what to do with the tree borders. I am thinking I will meander behind the trees and outline them. I'm not sure if I will have to do some quilting on the round part of the bigger trees or not.

I also sandwiched and pinned the cityscape. I fixed the "Y" in city. It seemed a bit too high up. It still makes a bit of a curve but not as much. I am now debating how I will quilt it. One option is to couch yarn around the buildings but I don't want to separate them too much from each other. They should look clustered or huddled together. The other option is to couch around the borders. I don't have any dark yarn yet so that will wait until I get to town again, maybe this afternoon.

Both 'architectural' quilts are looking good. The jungle looks like it was fun to quilt.

I love the angled borders with the blue and purple on the city hanging. I hadn't "seen" them before but they add a great frame while not being "proper"... Sounds like you're using this cold snap productively in your studio :-)

Joyce, it amazes me just how quickly you're getting through your projects. It shows an obvious love for what you are doing, and inspirational for the rest of us watching along.

Very cute hangings. I love on the jungle ones the great prints you have for the ground, the flowers, ferns, etc.
