This is "Ethan's Houses" the quilt I am entering in the Bloggers Quilt Festival . This is a first for me but I am having so much fun checking out all the quilts that I want to join the fun.
I made it about 2 years ago for my great-grandson. He saw a quilt I had made for our community quilts project using leftover blocks someone else had made and he wanted a house quilt too. He chose the sashing and border fabric from my stash, I knew he would choose this one because his favorite color is green although he likes all colors. We started baby sitting one day a week with Ethan and his sister when he was 2 and she was 1. He always wanted me to draw houses and when he was old enough to draw he drew houses or used foam stickies cut in squares and triangles to make houses. He likes things to be lined up and orderly so this is not a wonky quilt. In the windows of the purple house in the second row are two people who Ethan recognized as representing himself and his sister. I think that made it special for him.
