Scrappy House Quilt, WIP

This was supposed to be a surprise present, but if I don’t name the recipient, it might still be a surprise…  I have been working on this on and off for more than 7 months and I just keep finding more to do on it.

I think I am in the home stretch. I have the back and binding picked out, just need some of that valuable “time” that is so scarce these days.

I did a rotten job of measuring. I just made some little house and sashed them willy-nilly.  Currently it is 85″ wide and 74″ long. I think I might have to add another tiny row of houses on top to get it a smidge longer.

I used some of my hoarded Obama fabric, which I think the recipient might love. I still need to add some chimneys and front doors here and there. I think I may never feel finished on this one, I will just have to give up at some point!

This red and pink house might be my favorite, I just love the couch!

  1. How cute!
    Thanks for posting. I am trying to find patterns for scraps that are not your ordinary chain or string quilt. Currently, I’m doing a wonky star block. I like your house idea and may try it for the next scrap quilt.
