I’m liking this ‘quilt’…a lot!  Now on to block Number Three! Thanks Anne…there’s nothing like a little bit of peer pressure to get the job done!! :)

Now hurry over to Anne’s to see what the girls have been building!  By the time we are finished, we will have enough houses to make a small city!

Have a thrilling Thursday and Happy Quilting!~P

  1. Oh so good! Mine lacks character with its missing windows and door and then I'm already behind! Go figure! I need to just get them all cut and ready to stitch and then get all those windows and doors on right?

  7. Have you heard of the "Building Houses from Scraps" movement that is going on in the quilt world? A quilter from Holland has started it and quilters from all over the world are busy putting their small scraps to good use. Some are building one house a day! I'm trying for two a month. If you google "building houses from scraps" you will probably get her blog and all the wonderful pictures of houses that are being built.

  9. Your blocks are wonderful. Isn't this fun? I love the little "tweaks" to the pattern here and there. Lots of creativeness in our little "group".

  12. Wonder if I can catch up with you gals? I keep looking at my book and the blocks are not really complicated. Just not sure if I have enough homespun. Guess I'll dig around to see what there is in the old stash.
