More is better?Wednesday, January 30, 2013
Ok, I know I already made this block and showed this in my previous post. But isn't more better? At least sometimes? I'm going to include 2 rows of this block in my quilt. I just had fun with it and had pulled (from my stash) more fabric than I needed for just one row so instead of 5 houses I made 10.
Several of the houses have more geometric prints rather than florals. It is a bit of a change for me but I enjoy the variety of some of the more modern quilt fabrics. This peachy sketch fabric just looked like it would make a cute house.
I'm really in love with herringbone and hounds-tooth So when these became available in quilt weight, I wanted to have a few colors. And this measuring print was too cute, so I picked up 1/2 yard of each. I think they make a fun house.
More mixing of floral and geometric. This one is one of my favorites.
Same with this house. I like this blue and white check for a faux window, too.
I like this house a lot, too. If you notice the chimneys, or not chimneys, I put 2 weather vanes there cut from vintage fabric. The one on the right adds a bit of Pennsylvania Dutch to this house. I like that.
