House Swap Blocks Finished

I finished up my 12 swap blocks for Monday. Again, the "rules" are black and white background, any house block and must use the bright yellow print somewhere in the block. We only had a fat eighth of the yellow but I was able to cut enough for the door and windows.

The block pattern I found was from a Little Quilts book that I won as a door prize during my guild retreat earlier this year. Our blocks need to be 10 inches and the pattern is for a 8 inch house. I added an inch of extra sky and an extra inch of lawn/garden to bring it up to the right size. I like the looks of the smaller house - I know Lynda did the same (I think her house is actually 6 inches) but not sure what the others will do.

We are swapping out the blocks at our Monday meeting - I can hardly wait.


  1. Cute! I love the garden!

  2. Your house block is very cute and I love the garden. Black and white is an odd combination for the background, but it works.


I would love to hear from you. Make sure I have a way to contact you if you have a question.
