Together with the basket pattern, the house pattern is my favorite one. Although I made several basket quilts, I only did this miniature house quilt, but it is in my projects to create a large one some day...
Sunday morning is ideal for slow stitching and I finished the binding of this miniature quilt (here in Greece it is 2 pm). The size is 13.50" x 13,50".
Linking up today with Kathy for Slow Sunday Stitching.

  22. Charming little houses bring me closer to making some myself. I have managed to focus on UFOs until now this year, and will try it some more weeks. Or should I start a house quilt?
