More houses and some catching up

I have managed to keep up with making a little house every day of the year...so far. Here are my next 4 houses.

Rouenneries House.




Westminster House. (Kaffe and Brandon fabrics, mostly)


I don't have many of these fabrics with small prints so this house was a bit of am experiment. I want to make a few  houses with just one or 2 pieces of bright fabrics included.

Another mostly red house.






The last one just had to have some green!





Each of the house blocks is hand pieced.

My sewing machine also got used this week.

I finally caught up with my Bloggers Block of the Month block. These blocks were designed by Pat Sloan.
Below are my 2 blocks.





Pat had a great, simple way of piecing those 16 patch sections.

Here are all 4 blocks in each fabric combination.







I also finished 3 more Civil War Quilt Blocks.






Only 7 more blocks to go now.

Thankfully, the weather here has cooled off significantly. :)

What have you been sewing this week?

Your blogger's blocks look fantastic - both colourways are lovely but the blue is gorgeous. More cute little houses - I've still not made one yet, I'm thinking of making one a week instead and doing a wall hanging! I'm playing catch up with my Vignette quilt and getting ahead with my Some Kind of Wonderful quilt this week.

I've been planning to sew some houses myself, but I seem to put the plans eternally off. You inspire me to get cracking.
