Latest Finish to Share – My Hometown from I Love House Blocks

I’m back with another fun finish to share, my contribution to the “Blockbuster Series” of quilt books – I Love House Blocks.

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.

    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.

    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.
