Love Lives Here

Happy Monday!

I’m happy to finally have time to start posting again! Sometimes life gets in the way of my sewing and writing. We live very close to Disney World and our home is very convenient when family and friends are visiting 🙂

I love blog hops; they are a great way to meet new people, learn new techniques and of course my favorite drooling over others creative talents. I was so inspired seeing the cool quilt projects displayed during the September 2018 Welcome To My House blog hop hosted by Carol with Just Let Me Quilt.

I had to create my own wall art using a house block. I had some left over nine patches that measured 6.5 inches from another project.  I quickly figured out the math to create the “house” block.

My house mini quilt measures 25 x 31 inches.  I added a little embroidery in the center to add a little interest.  Not crazy about my fabric choices but my quilt math was accurate so I will definitely make another house quilt. I didn’t catch my layout mistake until after I added the border….

I used the roof flying geese scraps to make a candle mat.  Quilt block is Dutchman Puzzle.
