Houses in the snow


Wow, I am so impressed with everyone's pics! I'm posting my winter houses. I've since sewn them with a dark blue sky and plain white (snow) for the bottom of my little quilt. I was thinking of doing wonky snowflakes in the sky, but I can't get them small enough. Any suggestions? I'm thinking of slicing off the bottom of my quilt and adding some more houses. I'm also thinking of making some more things to go with this quilt, maybe a wall hanging and pillow cover.

My other plans include a tree skirt with words around the outside, but it's still in the planning phase.

p.s. sorry about the poor photo quality. These houses are nice and bright. My camera just returned from being fixed (thank goodness!)

My suggestion for the snowflakes is to embroider/quilt them in if you want the small. I did some on my Holiday House quilt last year.

You can buy felt snowflakes at this time of year in craft shops, probably for card making or scrapbooking. You could applique those.

Thanks for the help guys! Maybe I can do a combo of both.....

On the other hand, maybe the giant snowflakes would be fun - very folk arty.
