Yoopidou - I've got a bunch of quilts in the works right now.  But I do think an animated house is  next on the list. 

Have you seen Ludi's Woodland Fairytale Tree House? It's under Misc/Completed Projects.

The way she put together the levels?  Can you imagine doing that as an inchie house?  And then covering with that claycrete/paper mache stuff?  Oh the possibilities.

I admire your way of putting together your 'blocks' in this quilt.  It's so modern, yet so vintage. 

I've been studying old quilts and they just sewed together big sections, added a few rows to make it wider/longer, stuck on something else, and then sewed up the binding without a border.  Fearless.  Just like you.  Cool

You make me think about animating an inchie house, especially the I-house or the tree house. The result would be fun but they are very tiny...thinking about it...

Oh my gourd!!! Can you imagine making the iHouse shake with all those eyeballs?  What a great idea!!!  The platform could be mobile.  It'd be neat in gray patterns with black highlights with the white and black eyeballs.  Even just making it tilt from side to side.  And maybe a chimney that does something.  And some gears that turn or just move.  Oh the possibilities.

Oh for crying out loud!  Would you stop already with the awesomeness? You're killin' me, ma'am, just killin me.

Rocked, pinned, blah blah blah.  Tongue

What she said.  Cheesy

Ditto.  Hah!  Yet one more amazing piece of art by a talented woman.  The amount of details in your creations astounds me.  It's as though you make something, let it sit, add to it, think some more,  etc.  I can't imagine that many ideas coming out at one time; my head would explode.  Love it.  Love it.  Love it.  It would look great next to MY treehouse my dear!

It really is a happy quilt in so many ways.  And the color is not as 'random' 'chaos' as you think  Grin
Is this to be mine?  Looving it my dear!

That's gorgeous!  I love the contrast rows as well as the dark squares amongst the light areas.  I think this quilt would keep me interested for a looooong time.  Loveing it lady  Tongue

What cute quilts.  I especially love the pieced together houses.  Where did you find that great fabric with the awesome girlie skulls?
I'm glad to hear people are alright even if their homes were underwater, I was really lucky that my neighborhood didn't flood while the others all around us did.
Surprise Surprise on the girlie skulls.  [email protected]@rt.  Fabric is so expenseive these days (along with everything else) that I've actually gone to the dark side  Embarrassed
I'm glad to hear that you didn't flood as well.  It's hard to see, isn't it?  Both hubby & I are feeling survivor guilt and just can't do enough to help the others who lost so much.  I no longer judge my feelings.  It is what it is  Roll Eyes

Your quilts are beautiful.Especially for a beginner. How did you learn to peace the letters for the names? I have never done letters before. They look perfect.
I got a book a book by Tonya Ricucci called Word Play Quilts.  It's based on that Liberated Quilting Technique that a woman called Gwen Marston pioneered (maybe?).  Tonya is on pinterest and has tons of pins for great ideas.  Her blog doesn't seem to be working anymore.  But once I learned the technique, it's easy!  And quite fun Smiley

Thank you all for your kind words.  I'll keep updating the first post until I stop sewing Smiley  HAH!  I think this is going to be a looooong haul.  You all may see several/many quilts made in the process.

RackyCoo - thanks for the feature.  Alas, I wish it were for something else.

AlwaysInMyRoom - thank you for your kind words  Smiley

Cackle - my beautiful little inchie village is set up next to our large 'viewing' window.  After I don't know how many days of torrential rain, I looked at YooPiDou's treehouse and said to the hubby, "Let's build one of those!"  Hah!  My home is filled with beautiful treasure's from fellow Craftsters.  I have a flamingo pillow from EdelC. that I find myself just holding.  I even find my husband holding it.  It's got these white pompoms that for some reason just make me happy.
