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!

 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Cut:

  • 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!

Just Keep Sewing…
