Scrappy Happy Houses!

Well, this is not what I had PLANNED to do...but it sure was fun! I had cut out these scrappy happy houses out of two inch strips...surprising how far those strips went! I thought I would just make a wall hanging...but thought that since I had the strips cut, I might as well make more houses! I stopped at 30 houses, 5x6 setting. But I still have more two inch strips! and three orphan house blocks...hmmm, what to do?
Just need to add the borders and then worry about how to quilt it! Thank you so much for all your sweet comments, I love to read your thoughts...Have a wonderful day!

That's one great-looking quilt, Julie! I love the sashing and the corner posts. It really unified the quilt...well worth all of the efforts that I know sashings require!

What's next?! ;-)

I have started using extra blocks on the back. Just line them up vertically or horizontally and add your backing fabric around them.

Great house quilt. Isn't Bonnie great in getting you to use up scraps. This is like my Wonky T's. Fun.

Pam said...

The scrappy houses are great. I guess you need to make a matching pillow case with the extra blocks -LOL!!

Love the story about the little raccoon - that is exactly what I would have done if I was you.
