I am going to teach Scrappy Happy Houses from Bonnie Hunter in Las Vegas this summer. Her pattern uses 2 inch strips and sets them with a tilted sashing. I am going to make samples like that but I thought I would also use 2 1/2 inch strips and see how they turn out. Instead of finishing at 7 1/2 inches, the houses will finish at 10. Here are the first four of the larger blocks.
I am using black and white for the sky and sticking to one fabric for each block. I have plenty of black and whites so each block can be different. The actual houses are from my Kaffe collection and using brighter scraps for the doors, windows, roofs and chimneys. Each house is such fun to sew together.
Since these are larger, I think I will sew them in a straight set instead of tilting them. I wait to decide until I get more blocks finished.
Guild is this morning and Pat Wys is our speaker. I always enjoy her and am looking forward to the meeting.
