"Home Sweet Home" quilt block

I bought this magazine at JoAnn Fabrics, it has 100 really cute blocks.
The cutest of them all, is Lori Holt's "Home Sweet Home" block.
You can read about it on her blog, here.

This is the first little house I made.
The block finishes at 12", and I added a 2 l/2" border.
It finished at 16" square.
I made a mistake though.......the outside windows aren't centered.
I decided to leave it though, just because somehow, it didn't bother me.
I love the red and aqua combination.
I used my walking foot for the outline quilting, and the Bernina stitch regulator for the pebble quilting.  
I love a scrappy binding.

This is the back, red and white to match the red house :)

This is my second "Home Sweet Home" block.
I love the color combinations, with the swiss dot background.
I think the red and white gingham binding makes the house pop!

This is the very colorful back!
Both of these blocks can be used on a table, can be used in home decor, or as a piece of art on the wall.
I made both of them as a gift for some families in Brazil.

  2. Beautiful! I'm still looking for this magazine.

  3. I bought the magazine just for that block. Your houses are adorable!
