Monday Making 2/8/16

Build a House for a Neighborhood

Today I want to play in the Neighborhood.  I participated in all of Beth's past house block parties and now it is being resurrected by Hilachas.  A 12.5" unfinish house block to add to the lotto pile and maybe you will win a neighborhood.


I never won a neighborhood, but one year Beth gifted those who participated with the little fussy cut house.  I turned it into a little wall hanging as a memory piece - this goes back to 2011.


So I have pulled my plaids, shirts, and homespuns to build a house as they are due by March 1st.  One house block shouldn't take long and I can pop it right in the mail.  Heck, I should be able to make two - send it for the charity 'neighborhood' quilt planned.  Won't you build a house?

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  7. I've not made a house for a quilt, but every time I see one I think I should do it. Plaids will make a beautiful house for the neighborhood!

  8. Already sent my house in. I still have that tiny house that Beth sent years ago. I've added a sawtooth border, but it still sits on my design wall waiting for further inspiration.

  10. I have been watching Irene's houses getting built so it is fun to see yours too. I guess there are some advantages to using a machine. Have fun!
