"Oh ain't that America for you and me
Ain't that America something to see baby
Ain't that America home of the free
Little pink houses for you and me"
Some of you may recognize that song. John Mellencamp song from my youth. He's born and raised right here in Indiana, just a hop, skip, and a jump from me. Well about 45 minutes away. My boys think he's the greatest because they met him while shopping a few years ago. Right there in the local mall with his kids, blending in with the local yocals.
That song came to mind while taking these pictures. They aren't pink, and they aren't little but they do resemble houses. Construction stopped when I ran out of heat and bond light fusible. Those red arrows are pointing to an ugly spot.
I used a cheap muslin behind a cheap gingham and the result....I'll be remaking them. Hopefully reheating the pieces will help loosen fusible.
Well would you look at those darn leaves...UGGG! And I was concerned that the blue crazy dot flowers were to whimsy for this quilt. Seems that was the least of my concerns. FIDDLESTICKS!
Awwe....this ones my favorite.
Here's a quick EQ drawing of the finished quilt.
