|Building houses with my Singer 301 (Ethel)|
The guild requested 12" house blocks. So I made a little neighbourhood using the Stash Bee tutorial (which is exactly what we learned at retreat) for improv house block construction. My little houses started out as 6" charm squares and ended up between 4" and 5".
9 house blocks were joined together to make this 12" neighbourhood, which is in the mail on the way to Montreal.
One little quilt block will not change the world, but it will be part of the efforts to provide more love and comfort in lives and situations where fear and darkness live.
Linking up to the Let's Be Social party!
yay - I love your houses (of course I love all house quilts). Your color pallet is great.
You have the most unique quilts....love it!
Great improv houses! Made a very cute neighborhood.
Great post Kathy! I love that you made a little neighbourhood for Montreal's quilt drive. I'm also happy that Marjorie shared the wonky houses technique with your group!
One quilt block might not change the world, but it can do a lot! I love how your neighborhood came together and perhaps the recipient will feel that much more connected for having received it.
This is a super cute block!
I love both these projects! How fun. :D
I like your more sedate improv houses. Wouldn't mind living in that neighborhood. : )
A very sweet neighborhood.
what a great idea on how to enlarge a block! love your neighborhood and your guild's quilt.
