Ready, Set... Sew

Sustenance required for an evening of serious sewing - Chocolate Smarties - I need all the help I can get! Cleared a space to work on something Big - Yep - the Happy House quilt.

Collected the requirements, remembered that I needed to do some piecing on the back as the fabric I had was just a bit too narrow.

Used the last two Happy House blocks and more of those 2" squares, the back looks pretty too.

I sandwiched and quilted three rows of houses - half the quilting done!

I am very happy with my progress on this and I was grateful that I had committed to the Friday night sew in, just the incentive I needed to get this quilt to the next stage.

Now if someone will just turn the temperature down again I may get this completed this week?
Thanks to Heidi and Bobbi for hosting the Friday Night Sew In.
Happy Stitching

Good to see "the bowl" does double duty and works with smarties as well as M&Ms. The quilt is looking good - well done on your progress.

I love the pieced backing! And you made good progress. I am sorry, but can't find the button for the temperature. I have to confess I am happy though that the temperature here is above ) again!

This quilt is going to be AMAZING!! I love the scrappiness of it and the colors are so bright. I think I'm getting a house-making feeling!
