Cozy Cottage Lane...

It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood...
a beautiful day for a neighbor...
would you be mine?
Won't you be mine?
Won't you be my neighbor?
(stolen from Mr.Rogers..haha)

Will you be my neighbor on

"Cozy Cottage Lane"

Another new pattern by me.

I love house quilts...don't you?
So you know I just had to design at least two house quilts with a fabric line called Daisy Cottage ...right?

I knew that my furniture fabric with the
white background would be perfect for
fussy cutting inside the doors and windows of each cozy little cottage:)

















I used my large gray floral for a scallop border that is pieced...not appliqued.

The pieced scallop border is one that I use alot in my designs because I love the way it frames my quilts and is so easy to do.

I love my Cozy Cottage Lane quilt....
what a fun neighborhood to live in...
will you live in it with me?
Coming up tomorrow...
2 more patterns to show you!

These quilts you are demonstrating are sewing all the right seeds in my head..it is a marvelous education too! I'd love to use your fabric there are so many opportunities to have fun!

I love how you did the fussy cutting for the inside of the cottages! I am looking at it on Lindsay's computer, so it is almost like seeing it in person. The colors are very rich. I really like the pieced scallop border too.

The cuteness with this fabric just goes on and on... I like this pattern just as much as the lampshades. :-) I blogged about you here: http://myhappybluebird.blogspot.com/2011/10/sweat-tears.html

I would love to win one of these patterns. Thanks so much for the giveaway! :-)

BJ said...

The houses certainly are perfect for your great fabrics. I especially like your pieced scallop border - looks great and so nice to not have to applique it all around. What fun!

Kara said...

This is my favorite-I too love house quilts. I think that rather than furniture, each of my windows would have a lovely chandalier (because although difficult to choose a favorite print, I do think it's the chandaliers!).

Phyllis said...

I love the houses and the way you put it together. You are soooo creative!

I don't know why, but I too am drawn to house quilts. I made a school house quilt once but it was one I sold many years ago. I've got a couple of house patterns that are on my bucket list ;-) I love your pattern too!

I'd love to live there in a Cozy Cottage Village! The scallop border is the finishing touch!

Heather A said...

I must say this is beautiful. You should also know that previously I have never considered pink/grey/gold as a combination but now I love it!

Good on you!
