LET'S STAY HOME

I have hoarded a pretty good stack of Tilda fabric from several different lines.  
I noticed a cute pattern at the Fat Quarter Shop by Melissa Mortenson called Let's Stay Home.  It has these cute little houses, which caught my eye and seemed a nice idea to use those fabric.
The Star in the bottom row are easy and one of my favorite go to blocks.  However, the pattern called for making the star point with half square triangles.  I prefer to do them with flying geese.  I love using this Bloc Loc ruler.  Perfect every time.  
And in no time at all I have a star complete.
Now the house are paper pieced.  It had been a bit of time since I had done this, so fortunately the pattern really has excellent directions.  So, one large house, one tall, house, and one small house were quickly finished up.    
However, I decided that the large house needed windows, it seems a bit plain.  So I spent a bit of time adding them to the pattern.  I think it worked!!!!!
They are a bit small, but maybe next house I will try enlarging them a bit.

  1. I love how you added the windows to the large houses. We do not have to follow the pattern and are free to make it our own.
