Any way, back to block nine. Previously I said I was not happy piecing this block, too many small pieces. I also got confused as to which side to do next on the little house, so on three of the blocks the door is on the wrong side of the window. I was glad to finish this block.
|See what I mean, a lot of little pieces. I had to label them with the letter and size so I would grab the correct one when piecing.|
|The roof was done first, okay so far.|
|The chimney and the sky. Dark night.|
|The house. The one on the top is the only one I did correctly (according to the directions).|
|The assembled houses. Cute. |
|Marked and pinned, ready to quilt. |
The finished blocks -
|House #1 - The doors and windows looked uninviting, so I added window treatments and a heart on the doors. I really liked doing the stippling on this one, and I feel I am getting better at it. I like doing the up and down U's too. The back is below.|
|House # 2 - looks like a little log cabin with the sun shining brightly on it. The back is below.|
|House #3 - Not sure I really like the curvy lines on the house itself, however I like the curved lines on the bottom. Do you like the curtains in the window? The back is below.|
|House # 4 - Is that smoke coming out the chimney? On the bottom the pattern shows circles, not a fan of circles, so I did pebbles instead, which are basically circles that don't have to be perfectly round.|
|I love the look of the pebbles.|
|Even added them to the chimney.|
Block ten coming next. I am was not happy with how this block turned out so I came up with a little solution to correct my error. Please come back and check it out.
I am not trying to give instructions on how to piece this quilt or on free motion quilting, I am only showing my progress through out the project. If you would like to purchase the pattern or see the quilting videos, please visit Leah Day's website.
