Little Pink Houses (For You and Me)

Quilted 1

I participate in a web group called Small Quilt Talk that is associated with Kathleen Tracey and her quilt books.  Our current challenge is to make a quilt from Ms. Tracey’s book Prairie Children and Their Quilts.  I chose to the the Little Red Schoolhouse quilt but with a twist.

Pink Houses, a song by John Cougar Mellencamp, is one of my favorites and the line “. . . little pink houses for you and me” inspired my fabric choices.  It’s a small quilt, just 16 1/2” square, and such fun to make!  I made an extra house block to use as my label on back.

What next?  I think I need to work on another Mission block.


Hey, leave me a comment so I know that I'm not talking to just myself!
