Houses Done!

I have my cute little wonky houses all done! I think they are adorable and am excited to see what houses I will get in return. It is amazing how fast they go together. It was alot of fun!
Now to get them packaged and on their way to their new owners. :D

I had a great "mail" day yesterday! A couple of quilt magazines with alot of fun things to make, some wonderful FQ's from Fig Tree, a sweet quilt kit I have had my eye on for quite some time, and some Judie Rothermel fabric to go with my FQ's I purchases a while back. I am hoping to find some new quilt patterns for the quilting ministry at church. We are having a sewing day on the 28th and I'm looking for cute patterns for beginners to work on. We have had some fabric donated to us and it will be fun to have some easy patterns for the gals to use. If anyone has some recommendations, I would love to hear them! Have a great day!

This is a super easy and cute pattern that you can use for any size squares! The link is to a blog post I did showing how to do this block- it's fun and fast and great for beginners!

I've enjoyed seeing the houses reach their completion! They ARE adorable!

As for a pattern----no definite pattern comes to mind, but simple rectangles and squares would be my recommendation. :0)
