This was one of those houses that just made me swoon. If you visit the Cotswolds in England, and you drive the country roads you might find it. It has to be one of a kind and the story of the house will remain a mystery. I’m not sure I could find it again; too many country roads going in too many directions. I wanted so much to know the history. Who lives here and how many families have lived here before them? How old is the house? Has it always been the palest of yellows? What stories can it tell, this beauty of a house!
I spent Saturday with this house, but only in the studio. I drew it for applique only to find out I couldn’t capture it’s beauty in fabric! I tried for a full day, but the house remains elusive. A house this grand must want to remain in the Cotswolds. I love every detail of this house, so maybe I’ll try again someday when I have the palest of yellow fabrics.
Of course all of this leads to another clue.
Here’s the clues so far, with the new one in red:
1. Christmas with some pieced blocks
2. A little bit of snow
3. A tiny bit of pink in the quilt, 5″ x 5″ or smaller.
4. The fabric I’m using is” Le Petie Ecole” from Kaari, the French General!
5. I said in an earlier post that there’s a critter in the quilt that I like to draw almost as much as a bunny!
6. There’s a house in the quilt, and its set on snow.
I do have some good guessers. You know who you are!
Have a great Monday everyone!
