Starting my house quilt

I've been inspired by another flickr member - Mini Milly, who received a quilt of lots of quirky houses from her friends.

I came up with some ideas while I was sitting in a very boring meeting this week! Did the notes in (very bad) shorthand so no one would be able to read my notes, and realise I was thinking about quilts!

This will be block number one - a clothesline. And I'm thinking about having the trees in these pots. I've had these buttons for ever.

I'm thinking of making a chook shed, bush block with a water tank, a solar house, a Victorian house with ornate trellising, a push bike in front of a house (make it obvious that kids live there), a house with a thriving vege patch, a hippy house with a peace sign. One block will be just a tree - can't have houses everywhere.

Does anyone else have some bright ideas that I could add?


  1. Wow! You've got it all going there, Liz! Can't wait to see it! I was thinking maybe a hammock swinging between trees, or on a stand?

  2. Great idea. And I think the hammock could stretch between palm trees - make it a tropical block! And guess which bicycle fabric I'll be using for my "kids live here" block?!
