Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
Let’s do a block to “remember” this interesting period of time in our lives. A neighborhood filled with trees and houses in memory of our lockdown. We would use permanent ink or embroidery to label your house with your name and state (also city if you like).
Use the FatCatPattern “Backyard Friends” ... all patterns on sale at their website 30% off with coupon code TEXAS til June 1. Or use any Applique house / tree pattern that is 6-1/2w x 9-1/2h or 13w x 9-1/2h. We will use a light background, but use your scraps for the trees or house.
The picture below is a finished quilt using this pattern.
UPDATED INFORMATION... Any light background color (white, cream, tone-on-tone, light blue), add windows, doors, hearts, etc. and any style house you desire (applique, embroidered or paper pieced), just stick to either of above sizes, please add extra 1/4” around to allow for true-up by quilter.
Here are links from the I Spy Swap meant for this swap.
DUE DATE: September 15 to Hostess (send me a message for address if you don’t have it.
Make sure you include a self-addressed, stamped return envelope.

Thanks, Riana! Always nice to hear from you. I did really wonky houses with a group of gals in CA. Houses and trees are kind of relaxing, I guess.
Oh you are making some cute houses. I need to finish up the fountain tomorrow.
Thanks, Wilma. It is truly a fun project.
Love the name. I will have to use my short name as my formal name is too long, unless I decide to embroider it.
Wilma, belated thanks for the pattern location. I found it and am going to start on the houses and trees. Have the backgrounds cut - I have 7 so far, based on sign ups above, but will make extras (5 people x 2 blocks each - house and shop). Maybe a bakery sounds like the way to go for me (yum!). Just let me know if I need more than that. Is there a cut off date for signup?
A bakery does sound yummy, Melanie.
Oh my, a bakery. I have been craving all kinds of sweets with this lock down....currently loving peanut butter M&Ms.
Since this isn’t due until mid-September, I will wait until mid-July for cut off. Hope that’s ok with you all.
All is very nice Wilma
