The sawdust has finally settled around here and construction is now complete on my Full House quilt! This one was so much fun to put together. I used the brand new Reunion fabric line by Sweetwater and it ended up being quite a whimsical neighborhood. The fabrics in this collection were so much fun to put into this versatile and addicting pattern created by Carrie Nelson. I just didn't want to stop making houses! And I never really considered myself a house quilt person.....until now! My favorite prints from the Reunion line are the different years and the bright red Xs. How can you not love such cheerful fabrics?

I mentioned in a previous post that I took Carrie's suggestion and used the Fit to be Geese ruler to construct the roofs. Quilters have been posting recently about their favorite quilting tools, and I have to say that this ruler is one of my favorite quilting gadgets! Making a flock of geese was something I would avoid like soccer boy laundry until I was introduced to this amazing ruler last year. Have you tried it yet? Making the unit a little larger than necessary and trimming it up with this easy to use ruler yields perfect flying geese.
There are plenty more neighborhoods to see, so be sure to head over and visit Sherri and Sinta in the next few days to see the entire community in the first Schnibbles parade of the year! Thank you so much ladies for planning another year of fabulous quilt parades and fun!
