I love going to quilt market in the US, I get to meet so many people who I only see twice a year but with whom over the years I have become friends and Carolyn from Quiltmaker Magazine is a favourite. Carolyn invited me to make a house for the Quiltmaker Parade of Homes magazine, how could I resist......
What fun we all had participating in this 'Parade of Homes', you can see a house by Bonnie Hunter, Carrie Nelson, Kimberley Jolly, Gail Pan, Gudrun Erla, Nancy Mahoney, Debbie Caffrey, Helen Stubbings, Karla Eisenach, Julie Herman and Elizabeth Dackson plus a heap of gorgeous patterns for you to enjoyu making.
One of the fun things we were all asked was who we would like to be a neighbour?? I loved reading everyones replies in the magazine and I am sure you will too.....I chose to have Willy Wonka as my neighbour....why you ask...well, so I can have an endless supply of choklit and perhaps if I am lucky he might lend me an oompa loompa occasionally to help meet my deadlines!!
I had such fun creating my home, I used a mixture of fabrics from my fabric collections :) and I followed the easy to piece instructions by Lorri Holt (and you know piecing is not my favourite thing), then I had fun adding some wintery details. I hope you like MrSnowman, he was really begging to be in the garden of my dream home :)
I also have a copy (or a digital copy depending on where on the planet you live) to give away so please leave a message for me here and tell me who you would like living in your neighbourhood and why?
