Cluster Homes

Thank you all for your opinions on whether to cluster or space the houses; I really liked both ways but thought a smaller quilt would be good, so voila, with an apt quotation:

(that's not a stain by "cannot stand", just frenzied steaming/ironing)

The border fabric is one of a little stack of vintage-look tickings that I simply have not been able to cut into. Yes, I have been worshipping them. They are so cute and antique-y I just enjoy looking at them on the shelf. I'm glad I finally used this one, though.

I love the houses set together, it looks nice and busy, like a little town. And the border fabric is perfect for it.
