Front Porch Quilt QAL

I decided to use my huge stash of Bonnie and Camille fabrics to make my quilt. Block number one is the house at night. Of course, I couldn't leave well enough alone and had to add a few creative flourishes of my own:

This is my first large scale applique project, which means I will get lots of needed practice. Luckily the primitive style lends itself to beginning applique! I'm looking forward to this month's flag blocks.
