I’ve been saving ideas and house block patterns in hopes of coming to a definite conclusion about exactly how I wanted my own house quilt to look and eventually got so caught up in my head that I couldn’t get started! Each time I thought I had made a choice, I went to cut my fabric and then wasn’t sure. So as the struggle began to compound itself and interfere with my ability to just be creative, I got up one morning and said enough is enough LOL.
I knew I wanted to have at least two different house blocks in the quilt so they wouldn’t all be the same, and I was pretty sure about the smaller one, so I just needed to find a big one that would give some contrast but still fit in. I happened to catch a YouTube video where Camille from Thimble Blossoms was piecing a house from her Winterville quilt and it was just what I needed (the small house block is also one of hers). I purchased the pattern and got going that morning 🙂
Below are some pics taken when I unloaded it from the longarm frame and a video showing some of the free motion quilting and a bit of my thought process as I went along.
It’s a cold but sunny blue sky day where I am today, so I might just make some tea, watch a movie, and get this binding done. Enjoy your day!

Could you please tell me what you would charge for a throw sized quilt? I would love to have one made for my aunt (who is a a Walsh by birth) for Christmas.
Hello Laura! If you are asking about a whole quilt start to finish, I’m sorry I’m not able to do a custom order like that right now, but I have several throw sized quilts already available for sale in my Etsy Shop! If you are asking about getting machine quilting done to finish a quilt top you already have made, you can certainly email me to make arrangements for that 🙂 You can find my Etsy Shop here: https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/AnnWalshQuilting If that link gives you any trouble, you can go to the “connect” page here on my site and find a direct shop link there :-). Have a great day!
Hi is there any chance that I can purchase the pattern for the blocks I see in this quilt? I’m not all that great at finding things in the computer and using them if you can direct me to where I may buy this pattern I would appreciate it thank you so much
Actually I used a combination of blocks for this one, but the patterns I used are from Thimble Blossoms. One is from her “Dwell” pattern and the other is from her “Winterville” pattern. I just wanted the houses, so I made my blocks and put them together the way I wanted 🙂
