I’m back with another fun finish to share, my contribution to the “Blockbuster Series” of quilt books – I Love House Blocks.
My quilt is shown on the cover and I made it from a fun bundle of Pat Sloan’s fabric from Moda.
I made the house centers log cabin style and added a quick and easy paper pieced rooftop. I love adding lots of negative space (background) to my quilts so I can show off some fun quilting. Because I was on a deadline I quilted this one with simple swirls and wavy lines in a light gray Aurifil thread from my neutrals collection.
My Hometown – such a fun quick and easy quilt to make!
The book includes a total of 14 fun house themed quilts which you can view here.

I have never made a house themed quilt but the more I see them the more I want too!
Hi Christa, did you announce the winner yesterday? If so I missed it.
I’m working on some house blocks now.
I love house quilts and have incorporated houses into lots of my quilts. The last house quilt I made was last week. It was a doll quilt for my grand-daughter, where each little house featured a different fabric, similar to an ‘I Spy’ quilt. Each house was made with a 3″ square and a 3″ x 1 1/2″ flying geese roof.
House quilt is on my list.
I have not really made a “house quilt” per se, but I have made some bird house blocks. Love the different takes on houses.
I made an appliqued Autumn Houses (?) – a BOM – by Bunny Hill – from years and years ago. I love quilts with houses, but this is the only one I’ve made.
