Paper Piecing Monday’s Little Houses…

This past week I have working away on projects for other people… which has somewhat limited my selfish sewing.  In between finishing charity quilts I have been making tiny little houses…

These little buildings are 5 1/2 inch square and are the only paper piecing I have done in the last week or so….  the pattern is called “Outhouse” and is by Carolyn Friedlander …I am also using mainly her fabrics to make this round of blocks…

I am going to be teaching a class on making these little houses at my LQS, Modern Domestic, and this will be my class sample…

I am almost done with making the blocks and it has been a fun challenge… and I have employed quite a few tricks which have made the process a little easier.

I am looking forward to getting back to some of my other projects later this week…. I hear my Lizzy House butterflies calling my name.

Building some more houses…

Paper piecing Monday is back this week, after a flu induced hiatus, with another house block…

WQ House block 2This 10 x 10 inch paper pieced block was a not as complex as my last block… I am getting better at this house designing thing.  I simplified some of it to make sure that I was not dealing with too many little bits.

More houses next week… and I also include a wip with the blocks done so far.
