Look, the sun is out! We’ve been soaking it up. In between laying out slip n’ slides and trips to the beach I’ve managed a teensy tiny bit of sewing.
Last year I made a few little quilts tops to be donated…and then they’ve sat waiting to be finished. I looked at them this week and realized I better get them done so someone can love them. They are finished super simple…but better done than fancy right?
The pattern is Suburbs…modified to be a large crib size. I did super simple quilting around the seams, then bound it using the quilt back with this method (so fast!).
I won’t even tell you how many pots of hot water I had to add to the pool before they’d get in…my kids are cold water wimps! ;)
What a great view you have! It's been in the 100's here. 70's sounds like sweater weather. Your quilts came out sweet.

I hope you don't mind me asking, but where do you live? The view is fantastic. Is it your home or are you on holiday? The kids look happy in the pool. Love the quilt too.
LOOK at that view! So fabulous. Your quilt will be much appreciated
Lovely quilt and sensational view!!
Lovely quilt and sensational view!!
What a beautiful view. I agree with the kids. Warm water is better than cold : )
LOVE your house block quilt.
I do like how there are gaps in the rows of little houses, lovely quilt and the tutorial I had forgotten about so good to be reminded how to do the binding that way. Kids look to be enjoying their warm water!
It's my parents view! They live in Poulsbo just a few miles from us. But I'm at their house enough I might as well move in. ;)
That is some view! And you can see Seattle! Love the grin on the "baby's" face :-)
You sure live in a pretty area!! Wish the summer sun would shine on us!! Sweet pic of the kids. I don't like cold water, either!
Your quilt looks beautiful. I love theese houses. I just found out you wrote a book with a house pattern in it. Gotta have it. Lucky me I can order it over here.
Lots of Greetings from germany.
Sounds like you're having a wonderful summer! Love the view also and your kids are just too sweet!:) Your quilt is adorable!

Un cobrellit molt bonic
That quilt is gorgeous!
I just love that pattern in every fabric that I've ever seen it in! I need to sew a few little houses myself!! :-) and so fun to see your little swimming beauties!! And I don't blame them for not wanting to get into cold water: I wouldn't get into it either unless it was 90 degrees out!! Have a great week!! Hugs, H in Healdsburg

What a cute quilt! Love all the great colors.
Aw, such an adorable quilt, and WHAT a setting!! I had that exact same pool for my girls when they were that age...20 years ago, egad!!
I wanted to let you know that I finished the Off Track quilt top using Angela Walters' fabric! Here is a link:
What a great pattern, with very clear instructions!! I'll let you know once it's quilted!
I love that pattern--made it for my daughter as a housewarming present. Thanks for sharing the view.
And now that you've got that pool warm.... did you see this blog post to keep the warm water in there bug-free? http://imaginegnats.com/diy-kiddie-pool-cover/
Gorgeous quilt and view - I'm with the kids I wouldn't get in without warm water either LOL

Oh sweet! I add the hot water for my kids too:)
Love love the house blocks and the great fabrics you used.
Isn't pool time great? I remember carrying buckets of hot water to add to the pool too.
What a great quilt and an awesome view from that kids pool :)
Love your quilt pattern. I recognise your fabrics - Moda Oink-a-doodle-doo. I recently made a little quilt for our newst family member using a charm pack of this fabric - it's so bright & happy!
