Blogtoberfest Day 15 - A Quilted House.

Milly's Wonky House Quilt arrived back from Kathy today. I am so pleased! It looks fantastic. Really stunning. Can't wait to show her! I'm keeping it a surprise till the end of the month for her 6th birthday.

I choose a simple swirl and stars all over pattern. In yellow thread.

The back looks as good as the front! I am sooooo glad I sent this away to be quilted.

And this one is still one of my favourite blocks. Look at the star and swirls on that light blue in the bottom left! Lovely!!! I have 6 strips from my Kona Jelly Roll in different shades or red which I am going to use for the binding. Just have to do it all at night while Miss Milly is asleep!

That red house is my fav, too **wink**!! It turned out so wonderfully, I bet she will flip her lid when you give it to her! I love it so much for little girl - not too girly, not too grown up. Just right in the middle. Well done Mom!

Love love love that quilting! Those stars are so cute!! I've got to try that.... Did you do it yourself? And if so, did you draw the stars on first?
