(updated from 2015)
I had been searching for cute house blocks to inspire me with a quilt I wanted to make for my sister.

She had done a long overdue facelift to her kitchen.   Dark cabinets were painted, wallpaper was peeled, walls were painted, red bricks were painted ....  This lovely, fresh country kitchen was the perfect spot for a little quilt!

 When I first saw Lori Holt's "Farm Girl Vintage" book, I knew I'd found the inspiration I needed! 

It did take me a while to figure out exactly which blocks to use, so many choices.

Finally, figured out a group I liked

And the final quilt:

... In it's new home at "My Sister's House".... one of my favourite places !!!


  1. How sweet, looks wonderful up on the kitchen wall.

  2. The wallhanging is absolutely darling!
