We have continued to work on getting more ladies and houses into The ‘Burbs. There is a good pile of potential residents piling up…….
All of the potential residents are labelled so that we don’t forget their names….labels courtesy of Cupcake Princess!!
I have had to gather together a whole range of fabrics for these blocks aswell as a range of embellishments for the ladies and their gardens (the next stage of the project). I have already used up some of the fabrics that I bought specially for the project…but I should have plenty left for the flowery border.
The piecing isn’t particularly difficult but I do have a problem with making things wonky. My brain likes things to be ordered and therefore making things wonky goes against my natural inclination….I am trying to get some wonkiness into the newer blocks. I think I will group all the very straight house in one part of the quilt and have the wonkier ones in another – it will look like a real town with the posh streets, the older cottagey streets etc. Anyway lets introduce you to the new ladies…..
As you may be able to see from the pile of blocks the Dandelion and Elderflower blocks are much bigger than the rest…..they will be the poshest ladies in the district.
