London 2012 Blocks

21 comments
It was fun to work on my London Quilt blocks over the weekend thinking about the celebrations in England.
I appliqued a teapot and teacup.  I had a saucer cut out but I can't find it and hope it didn't make it into the trash.  I want to applique it under the cup.
I made some row houses or town houses.  I've been wanting to make these for a while now and they go perfectly with the London theme.
I'm going to stitch them together but I think I'm going to make 1-2 more houses before I decide how to place them in the quilt.
I also got my wheels appliqued on my bus.  I realize now I should have fussy cut people in the bus windows but oh well.

Pam is letting me use her silhouette for my quilt.  So I want to work on that this week.

Your row houses are irresistibly adorable, Nanette! They bring back memories of living in one such house in a small town in England a while ago!
The tea cup and tea pot are charming in your favorite color. I hope that poor little saucer is not lost and wandering among scraps :-/

I love the idea of this quilt. I saw some great fabric of the Queen's Jubilee but I can't find any to buy.
I love how this is all coming together! The bus is my favorite

LOVE these blocks! Are you drafting these yourself, because I am super impressed! You must be a math genius!
One of my daughters and I watched some of the jubilee festivities on BBCamerica. I thought of your terrific blocks when I saw the Union Jacks.

Your townhouses are adorable! I could see a whole quilt with just these.

Adorable! I just love everything that you make!

Sherry said...

Such wonderful blocks Nanette. Right in line with the Queen's Diamond Jubilee! :)

Nanette, that is going to be another mighty pretty quilt you've got going on there! I like the double decker bus as is. You could always pretend it's before it goes out for its rounds.

Oh sweet mercy those are cute!

Thimbleanna said...

Oooh, looking fun! How will you use the silhouette? I don't understand those machines and how they differ from each other (for example, the Go cutter). Guess I'll have to keep it simple!

that was quite the celebration for the queen.
Cute blocks. You could embroidery some little faces in your bus.

Love the row houses, love the teapot and cup, and the BUS!! All are adorable!

Cynthia said...

Those blocks are adorable! What a neat memory to remember the quilt as your jubilee quilt! I think you can still applique people in the windows!

Oh, I love those houses~! We saw quite some of the Queen's Jubilee on TV here. Very impressive and very touching.
Enjoyed seeing Madness on the roof!

I was pretty excited to finish my London 2012 quilt but even more excited when my fabulous machine quilter, Wren Woodland (Sew Small Sitches, contact info at the end of the page), called to tell me my London quilt was ready to pick-up. Wren did an amazing job. luxury apartments london
