House A

I did some more work on the first canal house today - nothing is sewn down yet, only fused, in case I want to move something. I'm not sure I want to do that, but I do want to put some sort of border around the door so it shows up more. The piece looks a little strange at the moment as I have folded under the seam allowance along the sides of the house (this was to help with the window placements), but on the whole, I think it works fairly well. Once I'm sure I'm happy with the bits, I will start stitching it down a bit.

Boo!

Love your Shoo Fly blocks. Sophie was sharing hers with us on the Liberated Quilters group last week - great fun.

The canal houses idea is wonderful. I love the picture and will be following your progress on this project.

The house looks like a lot of work! Lots of detail in it. Are you doing it all by machine? I think it will be wonderful when finished.
