I told you that I’d been having a little bit of trouble coming up with an idea for this month’s challenge, so here’s a little picture post about how the second quilt – ‘There’s no place like home’ came together.
Searching for inspiration! Of course, that’s always the first step. These two little tin houses in the V&A Museum, London, caught my eye. So I snapped pictures, thinking of the project..
They’re so schmalzy, and cute, and retro.
(They’re biscuit tins from the 1930s, and this one below has a little sign saying ‘Bicky House’ above the door. It looks like it can also be used as a coin box; I wonder if that was original or if someone cut the coin slot later?)
Anyway, this is the parcel of fabric I had from you, which was on my mind when I saw the houses in the museum. It’s also slightly retro, cheerful and breezy too…
Could they work together to kick off an idea?
Let’s see where this goes!
