I finished my last Quilt for Queensland this morning, my shoulders and arms are aching so I’m having a couple of rest days. There is a bit of a story behind this quilt, late last year I participated in some blog land Neighbourhood fun which involved making a house block (or two, three or more) and sending them off to Beth, who would then make up neighbourhoods of 9-12 house blocks and send them out to some lucky people. While I was catching up on my blog reading I found out that I was one of those lucky people. When they arrived I thought that the blocks would make a great quilt for Quilts for Queensland which is being organised by Corrie.
I had already started making some house blocks so I added them in as well, as my stash is pretty well exhausted of large pieces of fabric I had to use a bit of ingenuity to make the back for this one, the house roof on the backing and the binding was from some fabric I picked up at the op shop (thrift shop) last week for $2 hoping that I would be able to use it.
Of course this quilt would not have been possible without the blocks made by these lovely people:
Angie in Tennessee, Margaret in New York, Em of Em Celebrates, Victoria of Bumble Beans Inc., Carla of Lollyquiltz, Sharon of Vroomans Quilts, Rachaeldaisy of Blue Mountain Daisy and of course Beth for organising the Neighbourhood Fun.
