Vintage Neighborhood

I finished one of my quilts made from the Vintage Sheet Quilt Bee blocks. I wanted a small wall hanging, so I used about half of the blocks I received, making this about 36x36 inches. I chose the pastel colored blocks for this one and I adore how it came out.
I asked for houses - any shape/style and told the ladies that I love polka dots and trees.
Here are some detail pictures of each of the blocks they created. There's so much to see!

I probably shouldn't pick favorites, but this one from Colima knocked my socks off. I looooove the hexagon tree so so so much.
This cute polka-dot house was made by Jane. I really love the orange/yellow background, too. It feels like sunset.
I love the trees and the polka dots on this one, made by Evelyn.
Janice made this one - I love the pink striped roof and the tree is adorable, too.
This one is from Bethany. I love how it looks like a sunset behind the house.
This one is from Angela. Love the polka dots, of course!
These last three were made by me. This was the first one, which I blogged about back in January.
And one with a tree...
... and one with a FANCY tree. : )

The backing is a water-colory sheet by mother-in-law found for me in Pismo Beach. Thanks, Laurie!
I was excited to use one of my new quilt labels. I love these!
I loved being a part of this bee and seeing all of the great blocks made with vintage fabrics. And seeing this quilt complete makes me smile - it's such a happy little "neighborhood."

Oh, it's fantastic! Great job finishing it up. I just love it, and I'm so pleased to have been able to contribute a block. :-)
