Peek-A-Boo Street


Good things come to those who wait.  That's what I kept telling myself while working on this quilt and  pattern.  I made the first house over a year ago!  Now that Peek-A-Boo Street is finally complete and available for pre-order with the distributors, I'm truly tickled pink.  Thanks to Jodie at Ric Rac for allowing me to include Parsley the Elephant.  Jodie is the maker of all things adorable and I won Parsley a few years ago.  Daughter Creations gave me two pattern  cover options.  Still deciding...if Parsley isn't a cover girl she is definitely on the back cover.


Polka dots all over the place, adorable Japanese novelties, jumbo rick rack sidewalks and who doesn't love little houses!  Every street needs some trees too.


A million thanks to Nonnie and Candace for their patience and Supreme cheerleading!  Nonnie made beach cabanas and palms trees and white rick rack ocean waves.  I want to sit under an umbrella at her cabanas and stick my toes in the warm sand.  Thank you, Nonnie.


Candace at Squash House Quilts is a lover of the great outdoors.  Here is a sneak peek of her quilt.  Please click HERE to read the story of her beautiful and special quilt.  If it hasn't posted yet please be sure to check back.

And because I thought it would be super cute I made a smaller and modified version I call Trick or Treat Street.  I heart Hello Kitty!

*measures 44" x 60"
*quilted by Jackie at Canton Village Quilt Works 


The distributors have the cover copy and ship date as the pattern "guts" are being formatted.



I even made a label!


I finally have a finished PIP (project in progress) to add to my list.

If you're going to Houston Quilt Market be sure to visit Moda's booth.  Peek-A-Boo Street (the quilt) will be there.  Oh happy day!

Stephanie, you've done it again!! What an adorable quilt/idea. Your brain must be smokin' right along with your sewing machine!! Needless to say, I am just loving Peek-A-Boo Street and it's invitation for every quilt to be different and personal!!

Just adorable! Another great pattern! Congrats!

Ulla said...

This is the sweetest quilt I've seen for a long time! The trees make the streets so much nicer than just a row of houses. I love all versions, and Parsley the cover girl.

Absolutely adorable!!!!
You've really outdone yourself and it's going to be at the Moda Booth!!
Your supremes also outdid themselves. Polka dots, ric-rac, fussy cut cuteness. Such a fun quilt. And your model is just perfect for this (hope Abby won't be jeaouls)!!

Now you've done it again! It is stunning and absolutely gorgeous! Love all the houses between the trees - or is it vice versa;-) It's one of those quilt of discovery where you will find great new things the longer you look! I love it!

Nedra said...

You've got another winner Stephanie! I predict big sales at Market. Houses, trees polka dots and ric rac ! So cute!

Happy day indeed! Parsley is the perfect cover model. The variety your Supremes came up with is fabulous! I'm torn between which is my fave. Congratulations on a terrific and versatile design, Stephanie!

Simone de Klerk said...

What a very very sweet and charming quilt. Absolutely love it, Stephanie and little Parsley goes perfectly to it. She is really enjoying herself.
The Halloween version is very cute too and so are Nonnie's and Candace's. Off to take a closer look at C's.
Happy you!

I hope Abby isn't too jealous of Parsley on this one ;>) I can't tell you how much I love this design, Stephanie! Nonnie's beach version is so cute, too, and Trick or Treat Street is totally spooky! I can only imagine how many fun version can come from this pattern!
Cheers!

Peek-A-Boo Street is a wonderful quilt! The colour combinations are perfect - not too sweet, but still so cute. That jumbo rick-rack adds such charm on all the quilts! Love that Abby too :)
