WOW Wednesday!

I am so pleased to say that I finished one more house.  I only have one left.  I thought I would NEVER get here.  It has been a slow process on a quilt that I thought was done in February.

I left out a window in the middle and a tree.  I am taking short cuts to save time.  It looks ok, but on the last house I won't do that.  

The roofs are white to depict a snowy winter village.

I also did outline quilting yesterday and will hopefully have quilting photos to show soon.  The quilt has a dark brown back and a lot of cream in the front.  I always match the thread with the bobbin, so it is really showing on the back - every single stitch.  I have to take my time and try to have clean lines because it really shows.

Here is a glimpse of the back and the front so far.  I used ruler work in the border, but free handed the other following the lines in the piecing.  I will do a lot of filling in with patterns once I get it all outlined.

This is the third quilt I have quilted with this same pattern since January.  I can't quilt them the same because one had a woodsy theme, one was a happy bright flower theme, and this one is more subdued and country.

I am linking up with Let's Bee Social, Esther's WOW, and Wednesday Weight Loss.

Just been catching up on some blog reading. Your houses look so good side by side. They will look wonderful in your quilt.
All your quilting is amazing. Keep it up. You are achieving so much.

Your quilting is so wonderful! I can't wait to see your finished quilt tops at a future Wednesday Wait Loss. Those paper pieced houses are beautiful, and look so good together!

You did a beautiful job on those houses. I really like the white roofs, that makes so much sense. The quilting looks great too. Happy stitching this weekend.
