My Mother used to have a group of friends called her “sewing circle” who met in each other’s homes to do hand work on a regular basis. That was in the days when she didn’t work outside the home and neither did the other ladies–times have changed! However, I still have a group of friends with whom I quilt regularly. This little art quilt is in honor of that tradition.
I’d been seeing cute little quilts made with a narrow wedge ruler and wanted to do something similar. I don’t have a narrow wedge ruler and wasn’t sure I wanted to make anything with pieces that small anyway, so I used my narrowest triangle ruler, a 45 degree wedge.
I cut the wedges with the ruler and just estimated the angle for the trapezoidal doors. I cut the windows and roofs freehand. The houses are made from some Jen Kingwell fabric left over from another project. The background fabric says “cut, sew, repeat”. I decorated the doors with tiny buttons for knobs and put a bird bead on one of the houses.
