This jelly roll quilt is nearly a top, it's just waiting for borders, so I couldn't resist starting the centre block for my challenge group quilt. This time it will be a Roosting Robin (just like a Round Robin, except it doesn't get passed round!) and the first direction is 'house'. Right up my street (sorry, no pun intended!). I decided to make a medallion quilt and toyed with a nice Baltimore applique house or something more whacky Gwen Marston-style. What to do if you can't decide? - do both! So here is my inspiration, a beautiful Baltimore appliqued house, from Elly Sienkiewicz's book, 'Baltimore Beauties and Beyond',
and here is my free-pieced interpretation! I'm just cutting strips and sewing them together, and so far I'm loving it.
I might add a little applique in the form of pillars and fan lights, and maybe I won't. Hooray to be working with bright colours!
