Constructing Fabric Houses and Barns

IMG_0421

I have really been enjoying putting together these houses and barns for my neighborhood quilt.  Today is going to be a cold one and rain in the forecast for tomorrow so there just might be more building in my neck of the woods!  The blocks above the houses are my attempt at deciding whether I would like to jump on the Farmers Wife bandwagon or the Sylvia’s Wedding Quilt group.  Both are 3” finished blocks so I think I will keep doing the blocks I choose from both of them.  It is very fun to make a small block or two once in a while between these bigger projects.  I also have some free motion quilting to practice. 

The hardest part of quilting these days is deciding which project to work on.  For now though I will drink some coffee and see what my blogger friends are doing, that always helps me decide or gives me more options.

It's funny the things you see after you post a picture to the web...there is a tiny square of fabric on that barn that is the wrong background and the hayloft is so light it hardly shows...now to decide if I leave it or change it...

Enjoying my day off!
