November project in Progress

From this....
.....to this

Can you see why my heart breaks when I open a "Jelly Roll?

But then when it becomes a project the agony is soon forgotten♥♥♥

The pattern is"The Birchwood Lane House" from the book ... "Strip-Favorites by Suzanne McNeill ....and I choose last year's line of fabric, Birchwood lane by "Holly Taylor". I love the colors in this fabric. It doesn't do it justice in the picture as it shows as red but it is a beautiful burgundy..

This is work in progress. This piece is the quilt centre which can be used as a lap quilt but I am going all the way with it ... The next step is log cabin blocks all around.

I have to say it is a fun project to make and not very challenging, which was a perfect piece to work on this week-end after a very busy week.


  1. Joan it is just beautiful...it sure came a long way from that sad pile of unrolled Jelly Roll!

  2. This house quilt is lovely! It is so perfect. I'd love it, too.
