I am embroidering tiny bonnet girls, part of a Little Blues sampler from Sentimental Stitches. And then there's these tiny house blocks, my favorite new endeavor from designer Jeanneke's "Building Houses from Scraps." It took me a couple of tries to get into the rhythm of cutting and sewing these house blocks. The original pattern top corner pieces, came as single pieces. For easier piecing, I divided that pattern piece into two sections; much better! I did try to paper piece this tiny pattern, but opted instead to simply cut and sew like any other pieced block. More tedious? Maybe a wee bit, but the pieces are manageable and lots of creative fun in the making. I've many more little houses to make before it becomes a quilt; however, at last I have found that special thing, a little aside that I can pull out and work on between bigger projects. Mixing and matching the prints and colors and seeing the end result, it's like chicken soup for this quilter's soul.
