I’ve been having a fun weekend doing a bit of free style quilt block making. Beth at Love Laugh Quilt is celebrating the blogging community by building a quilty neighbourhood. So I’ve made a couple of house blocks to help increase the real estate. You can read more about it over at the friendly neighbourhood spot.
This was the first house block I made, I just got out a heap of scraps and started putting them together, then I decided to add a little bit of embroidery as well, just to finish it off.
My second block, a little bit different from the first one, this time around I laid out my block before I started sewing, it came together quite quickly.
The third block I made, this time I tried out the blanket stitch on my machine. I really had a good time making these blocks, the free-style aspect appealed to me and made a change from Dear Jane quilt blocks.
