A House for Bonnie

Tonya suggested a house warming gift for Bonnie, including a house block and some other stuff... here's what I came up with:

First is my signature block. I used all orientals.



Here's my house block with the required red background:



And here's my Ugly along with a crumb block. My ugly isn't all that bad; it's just kind of too gross in its attempt to look like a cool hand-dyed piece.



I hope Bonnie enjoys her new North Carolina home!

LOVE your house for Bonnie ~ very, very fun. I have my house done but need to pull out an "ugly" and create my signature block over the weekend. (love the way you did your signature block, by the way)

First of all, congratulations on your ribbons and family support at the show opening! Whoohoo!

I made a house block and a siggie block and cut strips of ugly fabric for Bonnie too. Do you think I remembered to take a picture before mailing them off? No. :-P (Your house is cuter than mine but my fabric is uglier than yours!)

Adorable house. And you described the ugly perfectly.
