I love, love, love quilts with houses on them but -- except for that single red schoolhouse block -- I haven't made a house quilt yet. I've got patterns. Lots and lots of patterns. But there's always been something else to do first.
Last week, I stumbled across the Moda Be My Neighbor Pattern Club and printed the first two patterns. And then I actually got a few quality hours with my sewing machine...
These blocks are HUGE. I know, the measurements are right there on the pattern, but my brain wasn't quilt processing how big an 18" block actually would be. I rarely work with pieces this big and, after making these first two blocks I don't plan on changing my ways.
What this quilt really has going for it, besides houses, is that I can make it with my existing fabric stash and it'll be a great utility quilt when it's done.
