I'm thinking I might add a horizontal row of geese between these blocks on the sides, so I'll see how that looks, but I'm pretty happy with how the blocks themselves are coming along.
Last week I was inspired by a link to Bonnie Hunter's houses. They originally featured years ago, but I don't think they date at all. [http://quiltville.blogspot.com.au/2007/07/happy-scrappy-houses-too.html] They looked so colourful and fun, as well as a great way to use up 2" scraps. As leader/ender pieces they are also a great way to make progress while focusing on another project.
This is just a start but I can see them increasing steadily to quilt size in no time. The jaunty up and down angles do make them fun and a change from just a straight lay out. I did a little feature of door handles or knobs on some - a spider on the brown house, a heart shape on the blue door - that makes for the uniqueness of each one.
Not sure who this will be for yet - a neighbour, a friend, who knows, but it will become clearer as I continue to work I'm sure.
Well that my bit for now,
Until next time,
Linking up with Quilt Story and Freshly Pieced.
