    Two House Quilts

    These quilts were made using the different templates that you would use to make any type of 12inch block. Triangles, squares, etc. I just rearranged them, let the kids choose colors for "their" house and sewed them onto 12" house blocks. Door & windows are just appliqued on.

    These are really great. The kids did a fine job picking out fabric for "their house". I like house and town quilts a lot. Nice work. Thank you for sharing.

Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

    Imagine what would be accomplished if no one worried about who got the credit.

    Those are great quilts! I see a bit of a red white and blue thing going on too - you could add some flags.
