Follow the Blue Bird

Are you following along with Riley Blake Designs famous bluebird, celebrating the launch of Hush Hush, RBD’s very first low-volume designer fabric collection? 

From now until the end of the month the RBD designers behind these fabulous low volume prints will be sharing a project featuring one of three piecing techniques (traditional patchwork, foundation paper piecing, and applique).

I choose to do my project, which I have named Fall Ya All, using the traditional patchwork method.

I used all 21 of the Hush Hush prints in my scrappy project.

I have had a long love affair with houses, therefore my print features little houses. I choose to fussy cut the houses so a tiny little house lands in the center of each of the stars in the quilt.

Here are just a few of the houses in my collection.

This house is special as it was made by a friend of ours using the lath from a wall that was removed in our 1890 Victorian Farmhouse.
