Welcome To My House…

Welcome to my house! Well a teepee is not really where I live.  But teepees have been on my mind since my visit to Wyoming over the summer.

The property we stayed at had a beautiful teepee set up along the creek for guests to sit in. I failed to take a photo of the teepee but I was able to borrow one from the website of the property. Just looking at this photo, I would like to be back there.

I came across this paper pieced quilt block from unicornharts on Craftsy. The pattern is a free download and has two variations of the teepee. I love the simplicity of this design. I added the borders to the quilt block so it finishes at 12″.

    Thanks for being part of the hop. I really enjoyed reading parts of your blog and love the story behind your Welcome to my House block. The tipi block is sweet and simple but the quilting just makes it pop. Thanks for sharing the link to the pattern.

    Oh my goodness. That is a lovely photo and such a great unique quilt to confirm that not all houses have four walls and a roof.

    I adore your tepee home. Growing up in WV, I had no real idea what a real tepee resembled. My only clue was a geography book image. I now live in OK, where many Native Americas live. After I got married, I told my husband that I had not seen any oil wells. Of course, he just chuckled and told me one of the places that we often passed that housed many oil wells. Again, I was expecting to see the “usual” geography book oil derricks and the derricks are removed shortly after the oil strike. I’ve yet to see a tepee on a reservation in the state here. I love the quilting you did on your quilt and the quilt is great. Thanks for participating in the hop and getting the hop off with great finesse.

    This is such a sweet teepee and I love the little heart at the top…adorable! The zig-zag quilting is perfect for this, too. It looks like an amazing place to have visited. I want to go there! Thank you for sharing this beautiful teepee and for hopping with us!

    Hello Stephanie! What a great idea to make a teepee block! I also love loved your block being part of a memory. I wanted to make a village of all the houses I have lived in, but just didn’t have the skills or time to make it happen for this hop. Maybe it will be a new bucket list quilt!
    Thanks for this lovely post!

    Wow that photo is gorgeous! No wonder you want to go back there. Fun to see a teepee quilt on this blog hop. Hmm now I wonder if there might be an igloo or tent or even a tree house from some of the other participants.

    What a wonderful way to remember a perfect vacation. The quilting you added is really intriguing too. It really gives it an entirely new dimension.

    Sometimes a person forgets that a teepee is a house. Yours is so sweet. My daughter stayed overnight with her hubby in a teepee. That was an experience they loved.

  34. Charlene McCain

    Your teepee is adorable! I love the colors, zigzag quilting, and the little “cloud” heart is just the perfect embellishment! Sounds like you had a wonderful vacation. Thanks for sharing.

  35. Dione @ Clever Chameleon

    I love your little teepee quilt, with it’s simple colours and wonderful texture from the zigzag quilting. Thanks for sharing. 🙂
