Happy Scrappy Village - SIMS Challenge

A while back I saw a quilt hanging in Quilt Craft at Toowoomba - and being the lover of - oops 'sucker for' - houses and buildings generally - I bought the pattern.  When I showed it to my SIMS group - we all decided we "needed" to make it...and the "challenge" began.


We decided we would select 3 fabrics each and give a square to each other - the aim being that we would have a little bit of each person in our quilts.

In January this year - I can see I was working on it...and we had a self-imposed deadline to have it finished - quilted etc - by December 2021.
I made it by the skin of my teeth.  (So what's new?)

Here is mine 

I grouped the houses I made from the fabrics given to me and mine - in the middle.
From top: - Maureen, Inca, me, Sue

On our Show & Tell day - we arranged them so we could see a section of each.


All the same - but all different!

Good to tick this one off the list - 
though I have plans to add some more quilting (and a label??)

Love your house quilts, well done to get it all finished. As Janice says it is great to see how each quilt comes out with different interpretations and colour choices.
