Deana: Americana House and Horse

I got a lot of hours of sewing in on Monday and Tuesday while at Mom's cabin, but not much since.  I did get some time today, however to make this cute little house.  I need 7 more blocks to complete a Buggy Barn Americana quilt so I thought I would make up some random blocks out of Americana fabric.  This block is from my Spring Row quilt.


I also spent quite a bit of time computer sketching patterns for these blocks in my Americana Row Quilt.  

Please ignore the machine quilting.  This was probably the first or second quilt I ever attempted to machine quilt.  My work is much improved now.  I would LOVE to pick out TONS of the quilting on this quilt and redo it, but it shows my progress as a quilter so I'm leaving it.


I also found time this afternoon to complete the machine blanket stitch on the horse's mane.  Silhouettes will come next.  This quilt is Mom but I am doing the blanket stitch for her in trade for some work she did for me.

I am still not ready to free motion on a big quilt. Baby quilts I am doing better, but I stayed with the feed dogs and presser foot for the queen size. Pictures coming soon!
