I have a few new little homes
to add to my growing neighborhood :)
I have to admit...they are addicting.
I love that I can stitch them
sitting next to the hubs in the living room
while he watches his "blow them up - everyone dies" movies.
My quilt will not have 365 little houses
and it will only be a lap quilt.
I have it all planned out in my head
and we'll see if it turns out the way I hope it will.
In the meantime I started cutting the pieces
for my Hideaway quilt.
I love this fabric.
Reminds me of Germany
and the co-ordinating gingham just makes me happy!
I'm going to start piecing it today.
I can't wait!!!
I also wanted to mention
in case you hadn't noticed the flashing button
on the right-hand side of my screen,
but I've joined the Craftsy Block of the Month.
It's a free online course and each month
she'll be showing us how to do two different
kinds of blocks.
At the end we'll put it all together
in to one large quilt.
How cool is that?
I'm going to learn paper piecing
curved piecing, Dresden's and much more!
All free! Being new to quilting
I'm super excited to learn new things!
I haven't shown pics of the first 2 blocks
because I'll be honest, I'm not a fan of them.
I'm planning on making my quilt smaller
than the 20 blocks she'll be teaching on.
That way, I'll watch the videos each month
but only make the blocks I really like.
