Red and Aqua Houses

I thought long and hard about KTQuilts idea to make my little red and aqua house panel into a bed quilt and repaint one of our rooms aqua but then I decided to take the more sane approach and quilt and bind it and call it a doll quilt.

I added a little three dimensional interest with this quilted door, a take off on Nicolette’s idea.

The quilt was made using 4 1/2″ squares for the houses. The roofs were made by cutting 5 1/4″ squares in half diagonally twice. Then I cut 2 7/8″ squares in half once for the sky pieces. The finished quilt measures 20 1/2″ x 24 1/2.”

The backing is a cheery Michael Miller dot. It’s in my shop!

  18. Amy, Amy, Amy. Just when I have created my own comfort zone of favorite colors…you dangle these glorious projects in aqua, red and white. It is so invigorating and fresh. I may have to step out of my usual colors and take a dip into these delicious colors. I love your projects and prints.

  23. I love this! I am attempting to make a twin size version for my niece, but I’m having a hard time figuring out how you pieced the houses together. When I cut per your instructions, the roof piece is wider than the house piece. Thanks for any info!
