Christmas Cottages

This is "Christmas Cottages I," made for the Waukegan Area Branch of AAUW for its holiday raffle.  The block is Happy Scrappy Houses by Bonnie Hunter.  The houses are 8"; with the setting triangles the blocks are 9.5" finished.  The quilt is approx. 69 x 78.   I finished the quilting and the binding today! 
 A companion quilt ("Christmas Cottages II") is in the works.  It will be the Friends of the Library holiday raffle.  One of my coworkers is making cottages for CC-II.  I welcome her assistance because, truth to tell, after making 42 houses for CC-I and 28 (out of 42) houses for CC-II, plus 12 non-Christmas houses for a BlockSwappers exchange, I'm ready to work on something different!

    Post the other quilt when it's finished, too.
