I just could not resist Building Houses from Scraps a fun project Jeanneke put together for 2012. The plan is to try to make a house block every day, so at the end of the year you have a total of 366 (it's a leap year) house blocks. The houses are tiny (7.5 cm x 7.5 cm) and meant to be hand pieced, which is perfect for me, but you can make them larger and piece by machine, if you like. Rules are few, but one important one is not to show a completed quilt before the end of the year, as Jeanneke said, it is not a race and takes the fun out of it for other participants if you do.
Last year I decide to go smaller and not make large quilts anymore, just finish the ones I have on the go now and a few I have already purchased the fabric for. So, I will be sticking to my rule and only building enough houses for a doll size quilt and it will be stretched out over the year. As you can see, I'm going with Batiks to build my houses.
Until next time.....happy quilting!
