A Quilt Along, My Life

1-A-Day, 3″ Blocks — Little (Pink) Houses…

  Little House Block

I love making little house blocks!

Had lots more fun going through my scrap basket!



  • 1 roof rectangle 2″ x 3 1/2″
  • 1 house rectangle 2″ x 2 1/2″
  • 2 background squares 2″
  • 2 background rectangles 1″ x 2″

Make a flying geese block with the roof rectangle & 2 bkgd. 2″ squares.

I used my “Lazy Susan” technique again

& pressed the seams open.

Sew the pink 2″ x 2 1/2″ rectangle

between the 2 bkgd. 1″ x 2″ rectangles.

I pressed these seams open.

Sew the 2 units together.

I pressed the last seam open.

Literally a 5 minute block.

I couldn’t resist making them all “Little Pink Houses”

(John (Cougar at the time)  Mellencamp song).

& yes, in the vintage days of Thimbleberries

these are all “pink”!

Show us your blocks at my Sewing With Susan FB Group.

We want to see your progress too!


How many will you make?

Just Keep Sewing…
