My heart in the center left is an appliqued heart rather than the pieced one in the pattern. My house on the top row, eliminated the intended pickup truck and planted a funky flower garden plus added stained glass windows in the house. On the lower half of the quilt, I substituted one block for a 1960s-type portable radio that I might have listened to while taking a bubble bath in the adjacent block, and finally... if I were having a pot of tea, I'd like to have that high tea sweets platter shown on bottom right.
As always... the quilting is a mind game for me.
. I want to make blocks different for interest... but not too different.
. I want the quilting motif to enhance/support the blocks 'story.'
. and I want motifs to occasionally be repeated within the quilt.
So here goes... click on photos for enlarged views.
The quilting on this 'happy house' is simply a wavy sky.
My polka dot purse is surrounded with like circle 'bubbles.'
Free flowing McTavish-like flow surrounds this happy heart.
Free and loopy teardrops repeated
Big swirls follow the 'plume' of the hat.
McTavish-like background for kitty
Circle Qs for the flower cart and bubble bath.
and num num... happy hearts for the sweets tray.
so... now to bind... !
