"Bless This House" Revisited

"Bless This House" Wall Hanging Pattern

It was Tanya's birthday this past week. She's our blogging, quilter, friend in Japan. If you haven't met Tanya, you must go and visit her. There's a link below.

Well, anyway, it was her birthday and I sent her our little wall hanging pattern, "Bless this House" for a present. Yesterday, she wrote back and sent a picture of her version of it. Wow!

It's very precious. The colors are lovely, warm and vibrant. Sue's carrying a flower instead of her magic wand and she's so dressed up! And look at the fabric Tanya found for Sue's wings! And fussy-cut overskirt and bonnet to match. Will Sue even want to speak to us here at home after this? She's become such a beautifully dressed young woman! From homespun to silk, in the blink of an eye!

Seriously, friends, I love to see what our stitching sisters do with our patterns (besides line the birdcage with them). Every creative effort is a one-off......special.....individual......worthy of praise. Thank you, Tanya, so much.


  1. Thank YOU so much! I enjoyed making this little quilt even though it doesn't have a lot of "prairie" atmosphere to it.

  2. Exactly. The colors in Bless This House were my nod to wool and felt lovers everywhere. And I'm going to be doing more of these, too, as I have found so many lovely fabrics in that mode at our local shop. Thanks, again, Tanya for letting us see your work.
