Two more blocks for my Dwell Quilt! I love to mix and match the fabrics from the Olive’s Flower Market collection by Lella Boutique for Moda Fabrics, to figure out what to add to the door or what block to insert in place of it.
The hymn “Love at Home” gave me the idea to applique’ the heart to the door…
… and I had to have that brown/black dots fabric on the chimney so I pieced the scraps I had left over from that fat quarter to make it (in the true spirit of scrappy quilts!).
This is the other block I made, trying to add more green fabrics to the houses as my quilting friends and I noticed we were neglecting that color.
Made up this simple way to showcase these flowers…
… and loved piecing this roof. The Dwell pattern comes from the Simply Retro book by Camille Roskelley; it is quite easy and has a few options for changing the basic house layout. Once you start, though, the possibilities abound.
Making the houses has been a lot of fun, mainly because I am not rushing. My friends and I make a couple of blocks per month to exchange and, in the end, we each will come up with our own setting for the quilt top.
And this is my finish for today. I hope you have a great weekend!
