Little Amsterdam

I'm having so much fun making these Dutch houses! Each is different, with mix-and-matched the roof lines. I got the pattern this fall from North Sea Quilters and have been adding to my dark blues ever since. The pattern calls for the doors to be made out of the same fabric as the windows, but many Dutch doors are distinctive and gorgeous, so I am mixing them up a bit, too. Each house is to have some "bling" across the top, which is fun to figure out, too. Jacqueline gave me several pieces of tile fabric, so I will use that to border this piece which will be a table runner for someone in the family. It's so much fun that I will probably make a few more.

Marianne, these are so cool! I LOVE them. Keep making more to show us, please! I've never seen a pattern for Dutch houses, although I do have the Dutch Treat book and have been collecting blues for a while.
