I have been working on show quilts and making good progress. So to reward myself I took some time to do something fun. First I made a couple of preemie quilts.. one is completed, one is not.
Then I worked on house blocks. When we have our annual show, we always sponsor a couple of classes for our guild members. I am taking a mystery class to which I need to bring ten blocks, size 6.75" . They are supposed to be all the same, ten of one thing (like ten hearts). Since 6.75" is an unusual size, I decided to make wonky houses for my ten blocks. After a while I started to get the hang of how to size them approximately correct so they could end up at 6.75".
Here are the ten blocks I will take to the mystery class. I decided to be a rebel and bring one that is slightly different - trees - but it still fits into the neighborhood. I am curious as to what the setting will be and how it will work with my wonky houses. The class isn't until Feb 16, so it'll be a while before we all see the result.
In my process of making 6.75" house blocks, I ended up with a couple of them that are too big. I had no idea the falling-down house was going to be in a flood until I got to the end of it. If I had known that, I would have used an ominous-looking sky. Oh, well. I really like it, even without a stormy sky.
I have Monday off and hope to get more sewing done! Maybe I'll post more pictures tomorrow, maybe not. It has been fun to stay put inside my warm house and sew to my heart's content.
