    I found this file with at least 50 more house blocks in a few days ago. Then spent another 3 days trying to find the file again. I had forgotten I had these! They are so cute I knew you would want to see more. They are so many I decided to start a new thread and also wanted to tell all you of to watch for my post of the patterns of the "Tropical Quilt" in Part 1 that so many of you loved with the waves and palm trees and beach houses. I'll be posting those patterns on this thread as soon as I can get a chance to do them. Hope you enjoy this one as well!

    What a great collection of house blocks. Thank you for forwarding the inspiration. I'm sure the makers would like a little credit. In a perfect world, all photos we "borrow" from the internet would link back to the original artist.

    I am totally in love with the tiny stuffed houses (#4) - I have a friend who's a realtor, and that would make the perfect gift for her.

    Thanks everybody!! If you read my House Blocks Part 1 you know that I did not make these houses. These are a collection of house blocks done by others that I collect for inspiration purposes and hope you are inspired too! I don't know who the makers are. Some are bloggers. Some are copyrighted but these are for inspiration purposes. If you see something you would like a pattern of, let me know and I will be glad to draw one up for you. Of course, it would be a different size as it would be "my version" of the block however I choose to interpret it. I'm creative enough to not need these blocks at all as I can draw anything I choose and I'm an artist, a florist, an interior decorator, etc. Even though I try many times to tell people I did not do all the blocks they see, they still seem to think I did them all! I appreciate that! This is a "hats off" to all those who did make these blocks!!! They deserve the credit. Now that that's all said, I hope you enjoy looking at this collection of others' blocks and are inspired by a design, a color, a tree, an animal, a sky, a shape or a flower or whatever you are inspired by. So enjoy the pics and be sure and post your creations -- we all would love to see them!! Thanks again everyone!!

    :-D :-D

    Everyone loves #4. Yes, they are stuffed with batting and the quilter made key fobs to match. Let me pull up another photo this quilter did showing all the house blocks together if I can find it. I can't post the pic now, but as soon as I can I will.

    I believe I saw these on Etsy and the quilter sells them. The button you see on the right hand side of the house is to be pulled out to reveal a tape measure inside the house!! How cool!! Yes, I've seen the expression before on gifts "the road to a friend's house is never long" on various handmade articles. I believe she designed key fobs to match the houses. They are a great idea for quilters!

    Now I found the rest of the house blocks and will finish showing you all of them. The first one I want to show is the #4 house that so many like. I thought it had batting in, but then I remembered reading it has a tape measure in and I found the picture showing the tape measure pulled out. Bear with me as I sort through the rest and hope I don't show duplicates. :D :D

    I just LOVE every single one of your houses. They have such character and I am so happy you've shared these. I want a house village much as you have shown us. I've made two so far, but am not at home to picture them. They are very basic, but I can see how one can become attached and want to do more. I keep thinking mine need a tree or a window box or a dog. I really like the flowers in the button house you've done. How did you develop those? Gorgeous, wonderful and you have me motivated now to do more and more. What you done with all these?

    Hi Sandy! I have not made any of these blocks. They are simply photos of my favorites done by others. They are to get the creativity flowing. The button one is darling!! The floral foreground fabric is added last, the house first, everything then superimposed on layer by layer. You could cut individual flowers out of a fabric and applique them raw edge. Hope these pics inspire you to create and add to your village you've started. Again, these are just my collection of photos only! Do you like my collection? They sure can become addictive doing the houses or collecting the photos. Hope all of you enjoy them and are inspired!

    I'll be saving some of those pictures!
