hi quilters.
the four weeeks since we last met have flown by. Tonight's quickie tute is about house blocks.
Houses in quilts is not new. However, this is about modern quilting so we should take a look at how the house blocks have been rethought.

I found great examples and tutorials to peek at and maybe get some inspiration.

My mind is on fall and Halloween this time of year. I am envisioning haunted houses and witch cottages. Christmas could be gingerbread houses or Santa's workshop. Ohhh... you could make curtain flaps that open and reveal fussy cut pictures. You could use some of your favorite scraps.

I would love to show what you quilt up. It doesnt have to be something made from the tutorials. This is your guild blog so lets see what you got. You worked hard now show off.

I would also like to welcome our newest member, Trina, to our group. Welcome Trina. She is the one with the super cute little baby.
