Welcome To My House Blog Hop

When I saw that Carol of Just Let Me Quilt was holding a Welcome to My House blog hop - all about houses - I knew I had to join in.
Houses have always been a part of my quilting.


Now I didn't make anything new for this blog hop...as the Schoolhouse from my 'Mary Had a Little Lamb' block doesn't count.
This block is part of my new Storyland quilt series beginning next week.
The sampler comes with a companion eBook that can be read along with the quilt.
There's also an 'If I Drive...' quilt and eBook - and the patterns for both will be free to Victoriana Quilt Design Members.
You can read all about these new quilts here.

I won't disappoint, though, as I have a little quilt show, with some of the quilts I've made with a house.I did not include my quilts with birdhouses, lighthouse or beehive. :)

My quilting began with my Victorian Manor quilt - well it was my second quilt.


And then I made my Painted Lady quilt.

You can read more about my pictorial quilt beginnings here.












I hope you enjoyed your tour of my quilts that include houses!

Be sure to click through to the next place for more house hopping...

    1. Thanks Daryl - haven't had the time to completely figure out the email reply thing yet.
      As for the spam issue - yes...all of the comments I get end up in my spam folder...including yours just now...and no matter how many times I say 'not junk' it keeps doing it.
      So I know to go there to move them to the inbox. <3
