When the weather is cold and the wind has been nipping on your body, there's no better place than your own snug home, all toasty with a chair that fits your bottom and a nice hot drink waiting for you. Our houses are important and are the inspiration for many projects including the house quilt blocks.
I found a blog which I believe is Dutch, and she makes many, many little house blocks and she starts with a stamp to make the house components. Building House from Scratch has a lot of sweet scrappy house ideas.
Craftsy has a great tutorial on making houses and I like the nice clean lines of this pattern.
Quiltmaker has the very sweetest 3" houses, I can see many small scraps going into this little cuties.
Bloomin Workshop has a wonderful manor house block for all your Downton Abbey fans. You too can be lady of the "manor".
Retro Mama has a little cottage home with rick-rack trim.
Here is a pin from Quilt Nut Creations that shows a beautiful finished house quilt with applique.
Natalie Ross In Stitches has some photos of good applique and embellishing ideas to add to applique houses. They are very cute and inspiring, I really like the wonky wobbly house. Hope you like the house ideas to put on your bucket list. Diana
