I join Tonya’s Lazy Gal Summer class earlier this year. And now that I have my swaps under control, it is time to work on something else. It’s fun to start new projects. But I try not to start any before I finish up what’s already in progress. I have a handful of unfinished quilts, and I don’t want to add anymore.
The theme of Tonya’s summer class is repetition. I wanted to make houses. I have made lots of wonky log cabin houses, but I wanted to try the more traditional house block. After browsing through Collaborative Quilting by Freddy Moran and Gwen Marston (again), I was really fired up to start.
Here are the blocks so far:
I will square them up when I put the whole thing together. I think I want it to be snuggle-on-the-couch size. And I’m not sure if it will just be houses or if I will add other things yet. For the houses, I set up a few particulars about fabric. The main parts of the houses will be dotted fabric, yellow windows, black dotted roofs, color coordinated doors and the background will be lime/bright green. I want it to be fun but not chaotic.
