I am working on a second Next Door BOM quilt top. Rather than using solids that accurately reflect the colors of the houses of those styles, etc., as I did in the first top, I am using prints and whimsical fussy cuts for each house. My insistence on realism has been loosened though not entirely let go!
The windows are full of people, clocks, birds, cats, you name it!
I am still working from my stash as much as possible but did raid my mom’s stash for a few things!
I thought that by showing the two different ways to approach the quilt would help you decide which way you’d like to go.
I felt fortunate for my deep stash of laces, texts, and textured solids!
If you would like to join the Next Door BOM, it starts January 1st and runs through December 1, 2020. You can find the listing here or here!
