Welcome to the Neighborhood

I promised an interim picture of the new baby/crib quilt and here it is:



I only have to add some sashing to make it the length we're shooting for. I expect to be piecing the sashings a bit to add additional interest to the composition. (The bright white strips you see between the horizontal rows are where the sashings are most likely to go.) At this point I'm too cranky to do more work on it. I made the mistake of opening the new Fiberarts magazine that came in yesterday's mail and now I'm suffering the consequences. {sigh} I didn't even READ any of it! I just paged through real quickly to see what it contained! Guess I'll get out the paint respirator and see if that will protect me from the fumes... If that works then maybe I can also read the last two Quilting Arts magazines and not have to cancel my subscription.

I love, love, LUV that brick and mortar fabric you used for some sashing and the windows in house #1. So cute.

This is really a fun quilt! I think your DD will probably just love it! Think about keeping a special quilt at your house, for when YOU have the little there for some grandma time..*VBS* Sorry to hear about the magazines setting you off, man that's gotta be hard. Thinking of you and hoping you are feeling better by now, Hugs,Finn

Hope the respirator works for you. What a misery... I LOVE the fact that the chimney hangs out on that one house - adds character.
