A Quilt Along, My Life

1-A-Day, 3″ Blocks –American Homes

 American Homes Block

How many squares in a box blocks did you make yesterday?

Having fun like I am?

Today’s block is American Homes

but I’m renaming mine to Goldilock’s houses.

You’ll see why I renamed it below.

Had lots more fun going through my scrap basket!



  • 1  1/2″ sq. baby house fabric
  • 1  1/2″ x 2  1/2″ rec. mama house fabric
  • 1  1/2″ x 3  1/2″ papa house fabric
  • 6 sq’s. 1″ background fabric
  • 1 sq. 1  1/2″ background fabric
  • 1  1/2″ x 2  1/2″ background rec.


Use “Lazy Susan’s” flying geese method

as described in the spool blocks

to make the top of each house.

Press seams open or toward the triangles.

Sew the columns together to complete the block.

I made 2 blocks.

I was going to stop here, but trudged on.

I’m glad that I did!
