Hello to everyone!
I'm so excited to be a part of this house, home, pantry quilt project - I had actually started working on a quilt for my husband with all of our previously lived in and loved houses, so I think this fits right in with what I'm working on. My only problem is I'm trying to make the houses actually look a little like what they really looked like, and I'm getting all hung up on making things symmetrical, etc. The first two houses turned out well, but hardly look "wonky", should I start all over again with "wonky" versions of the houses or just proceed to evolve into "wonky" houses? I'm relatively new to quilting, and have only done free-pieced quilts, can't hold myself to a pattern, and REALLY don't like cutting out hundreds of little tiny squares and triangles all the same size (my Grandmother was Pennsylvania Dutch and she'd apalled) - but I guess I have to do my own thing. At any rate, I love this whole idea and can't wait to follow everyone's progress!
