house numbers



all the houses are freshly painted and numbered


while some eager residents are already settling in


and discovering new neighbors


some are still adding last minute details

I hope they have a happy and comfortable living here. I envy that they can hop to the town to have a yummy Paris macaroon anytime they like but can also enjoy the green sorroundings all year round.


I have never seen a house with the number 'zero'. So I couldn't help assigning it to the tiny house of the bunch :)


The flower prints and yellow trees are from Far far away collection by Heather Ross. Maureen gave me this blue floral when we were visitng her in California. Suzuko Koseki's 'Sites of Paris' in light mint green is what inspired me with the theme. It has Moulin Rouge dancers, romantic postcards, Eiffel tower, fun text and fashion accessories.
 I thought Atelier Akiko's fabric in light blue is perfect for the sky. I love that it gives an illusion of delicate ribbons floating in the sky.. perfect for Paris, don't you think? ( ' u ' )

The houses and numbers which are focus of this quilt are from Ikea. When I spotted the House print on the shelves I instantly felt like making a LogCabin quilt with them as the center. But I had no idea what to to do with the number print but it looked too good to leave behind. I am glad they came together in this quilt. Each house has a unique number so that the postman would have no worries finding the right address.

These are the biggest blocks I have ever made. They are 14" square. By the time I finished making all the blocks I was also running out of fabrics. Now I only have small scraps of Suzuko fabric left :/

What are your plans for today? I will be working on putting these blocks together :)
Thank you for stopping by! Hope you have a Sunny morning!

I think I need a trip to IKEA! I love the softness of the colors yet they make a statement. Looking forward to the reveal.

Love the numbers with the houses. It is modern and fun. The houses are darling and the fabric is perfect! Your attention to detail is always so amazing.

Who wouldn't want to live in a house in Paris like yours (I'll take #Zero, please) and be able to walk out the front door for a macaroon! You'r having so much fun, Pratima!
Cheers!
