A glimpse into my quilting journey - projects, tips, techniques, and more.

Last year, one of my guilds made house blocks as the block of the month. Each house finished at 12", and had a 6" block of the quilter's choice inset. I wanted to participate, but really did not want a quilt of 12" houses. So after looking around for a while, I picked up a package of quilters candy (2.5" squares) in Kona colours that had been in my sewing room for a while, and decided to use it..
I picked a rainbow of colours, and each house was pieced from two 2.5" squares of fabric. Each of my mini houses finished at 3 1/4", with a 1 1/2" pieced block in greys as the inset. From some of the leftover squares, I pieced little trees to round out the scene. Then I quilted it on my computerized longarm, by shrinking a snowflake pattern down to scale.
