Row Homes Done London 2012

34 comments
I'm starting to sew blocks together for my London 2012 quilt.  Since I have no overall drawing for the finished project, I'm a little nervous about it.  Up until now I've just had theme blocks drawn and sewn.  But, now I've got to start making a real quilt out of the different blocks.
First I've got my 2 sets of row homes.  I really wanted them to all look similar in size but unique in features.
I'm going to have the row homes on opposite corners of the quilt.  I'm hoping as I bring all my London blocks together that by using sashing it will become a cohesive project.

Hi Nanette, I haven't stopped by in so long and thought I would pop in and see what you've been working on. Your row houses are adorable and they remind me of San Francisco.
