Last week, I saw Karen’s Summer Cottage blocks at Karen’s Quilts, Crows and Cardinals. They are beautiful and I thought that maybe I could share mine too. The houses I am working on are not summer cottages. They are houses we find downtown. Old square houses.
They do not have the “clean” look of freshly built houses. The colors may be slightly pale, the structure may not be as straight as before, holes may be found in the mortar. But the bushes are fully grown, the gardens have a mature look, some of those houses have vines over their bricks and there is an overall charm that no one can deny.
Those blocks are a work in progress. They are not finished and more blocks will be added. From time to time, I look at them and add an embroidery here, a piece of fabric there. And I see a border or a stitching that is not straight. Sometime I will undo what should, maybe, be straight. But I often just leave it as it is. That adds some charm, no? I am wondering… what do you do? Do you undo the culprit and make it straight or do you leave it there? There is no right or wrong answer. I am just wondering what you usually do… France
