I wasn't expecting to like doing this block or my fabric choices so much.  It was much quicker and straightforward than I expected from when I first glanced at the instructions.

Yes sometimes trying to write what you do ends up more complicated  than actually doing it ... and this was one of those blocks!

They are wonderful and I love how you mixed it up ... Surely that the beginning of a small town ????

That's reassuring, Cheesecake - I really do want to catch up with making all these BOM's but the more I fall behind, the more I put off starting any of them. :S

My daughter loves this block. She took an interest!  :o  in his one and advised me! on what to put on it and where. She'd have me making an enormous town if I wanted to.  :S

Great fun. Loved it. Thank you Iminei for finding this one for us to try.

That's lovely Sandra, and the others that have been completed too.  I don't think I'll be bomming into the hof with this one - it leaves me a bit cold.  I think it's because I can't be bothered with fiddly embellishments.
I make cakes but have no interest in decorating them.  I knit but can't get excited by little knitted toys.  I cook but can't be bothered with fancy trimmings or stuffing things. 
I think it's just my nature because I will spend ages on intricate construction to get it just right.

Tell me about it ... Im already beating myself up on this ....





its what happened when I joined the Town and Country block of the day ... I started squaring off the designs and then started recreating Blandford and then it all got too much ...





These blocks are 4 1/2" tall and multiples of 4" wide !!

There must be a masochist gene in me somewhere ... Can someone please remove it?

But you could use Jazzy patterns for the roofs and bodies of the houses???

Those are beautiful @Iminei. You certainly are a masochist.
With anything I make but especially anything pictorial I need to have an image of the finished item in my head before I begin - if the picture's not there I can't get started.
It's the same with understanding something.  I have to be able to create a picture from the explanation or it just won't make any sense (much to DH's frustration).  It's why I'm good at teaching - that's not being big headed, I've frequently been told I'm good at it.

The blocks are beautiful and I can admire them but I agree with Ploshkin (who has explained it far better than I ever could) that it's the construction of things that's interesting - not the embellishing. Once something (whatever it is) has been constructed, I lose interest, so I'm not sure I'll be doing this BOM either. Especially since I'm lagging way behind on doing other BOM's and the paper piecing one (which-I-really-want-to-do-but-can't-remember-the-abbreviation-for). :S

I will definitely be doing it, but not until I've finished the 3-way sewalong.  I may be somewhere near Calico Kate's later today so I may break my rule about only using my stash for the BOMs.  Oh dear, what a pity, never mind.   ;)
