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.

Sounds like you ladies are moving right along. Happy sewing!
I heard from Melanie. Her blocks are expected to arrive here by the 12th. If that is the case, I will mail out next week.
All blocks are received. I will work on packaging and will mail out next week. Once mailed, I will post info and tracking numbers. Can’t wait to see finished items.
UPDATE: Have separated all houses/trees and ready to package up. Will plan on mailing tomorrow....smoke is so bad here from fires (wind brings in smoke to NV) we have been told to stay indoors. Will only go out for 15 min visit with mom, then inside. Hope in the morning it will be better and will go to post office. Will post a picture later today...so cute.
Wow. Please be safe.
Aren’t you amazed at the clever ideas? Quilters have an ability to take an idea and run with it. I love it!
Yes, they are so cute. Our absent swapper has shown up in the UFO Tiny Town. Oh well, I love the blocks.
Oh yay!! Everyone did a beautiful job. Can’t wait!
Packages were all mailed today. Estimated delivery is 9/21...but who knows. Tracking numbers are on the front page next to your name. Smoke is still bad here, now the are saying “at least” Tuesday before it is gone. Have a good weekend and stay safe.
Thanks, Wilma. And thanks for being our hostess. I am looking forward to this quilt!
