Design Wall Monday 5-30-11

Happy Memorial Day! Happy Birthday to my mother who turned 84 today!

Am linking to Patchwork Times today for Design Wall Monday.

I finished the 715 Ann Street - a whimsical tribute to my lovely grandmother's house, a home we all loved and adored when we were growing, a home that contains many happy memories. Though the house no longer is "in the family" the people that own it are terrific and take such loving care of it. My grandmother would be thrilled to see how beautiful her home is these days.

What's left to do on this piece is the quilting, of course, adding some flower buttons on the shrubs, and writing "715 Ann Street" above the front door. This piece has been a true joy to make.


  1. It is absolutely beautiful!

  2. ohhh this is quite nice! Can't wait to see what the quilting lines will add to it!

  3. Great job on the house quilt! The sky fabric you chose makes the house seem very happy. Look forward to seeing how you will quilt it!
