is not our front porch. I love our front porch but it’s different than this
one. We did used to have a red porch swing, but we don’t anymore.
I was working on this quilt, my husband was putting new siding on our house. He
went with a tongue-and groove cedar that he stained, I went with yellow
clapboards. He installed two new windows while I only had to make one.
"Lazy Summer Afternoon" detail
clapboards on the house were made by folding over the bottom edge but laying
them down starting at the top. Getting the angle of the clapboards and the
window were a little tricky.
railing is pieced, everything else is raw edge appliqué. The “chains” that the
swing hangs from are black cord that is couched down.
