Well actually, Shirley built SEVERAL houses…all bright and FUN houses! Houses fit for a neighbourhood full of kids! This would be the PERFECT child’s quilt…
Just look at these wonderful houses…childrens’ faces pressed to each window pane!
I can almost SEE Mr. Rogers strolling down the street singing ‘Won’t YOU be my neighbour”…with all the cute and very precocious children screaming “YES!”!
But to heck with the kids…LOOK at the quilting!! It just adds another element of whimsy to the quilt!
See the Christmas House…the children get to celebrate Christmas all year long! Can you see the chain of holly leaves…and don’t you love the fireplace bricks!
And I love the trees…with the wispy clouds and blades of grass!
My favourite…the loop-t-loops and stars and the happy sun in the corner!
And check out the night time quilt…the children peeking out of the windows…and the same stars twinkling in the sky!
There’s even a CAT HOUSE!…well there is!! Cats in the windows and look at the ‘meow’ quilting!
And LOVE the night time trees…very sweet!
Shirley has an amazing collection of bright fabric…or rather HAD an amazing collection of bright and happy fabric! Makes me want to start collecting…
Yup…any kid would LOVE this quilt…even big kids like ME!
Thanks for sharing, Shirley!! I love it!!
…and NO, I don’t know the name of the neighbourhood…sorry! :o((
Have a FUN, whimsical Friday and Happy Quilting~P
