We are a year old today and to celebrate

we have a super quick, super easy

3D House block

for

March's Birthday Block of the Month!!


3D House Block

We are combining 3" strips (so is an excellent stash buster), a lil folding and a lil applique, (if that's the way you choose to go!)

This block  can be as plain, avant garde or detailed as you wish ...

Have Fun Girls (and Boys?) !!!!!

Thank you, Iminei. This is lovely....so many possibilities!

I love your village.  <3

I think I'll start small and keep the village idea on the back burner for now.

@Iminei my darling......whatever possessed you to think that I could even attempt something like that??  :o You know my woeful attempts at applique  :'( and there's not enough paper in the world to copy down those detailed instructions  :S However, I love the block and will look forward to seeing what clever people can do  :ninja:

I was feeling decidedly sleepy until I discovered this thread. Although I knew that it was the 1st March today it hadn't registered that there would be a new BOM :| I may now have to stir myself and see what's about to make 3" strips unless of course I make it smaller (will it go smaller?) as I have lots of 2.5" strips. Thanks Iminei, love your village.

I've had a bit of time so I've been playing. Don't know if this will work as I've got a new laptop. Here goes

Very nice.

I've made the basic house X 12, but not detailed or sashed yet. Not sure when next I'll get to it.

Oh, that's lovely. You've got climbing, rambling flowers!  :flower:

It's at times like this I wish I had a machine which did fancy stitches.

I'm still trying to decide on the fabrics for mine.

Lovely Maliw. I'll get to this soon, but a bit tied up with Tennessee Waltz at the moment.  :[

Here’s mine, decided to try using the older style singer buttonholer foot to do the appliqué rather than remember how to use my modern machine.  I think if the modern one had vine and flower stitchers I would have!
