I Love Home BOM #2

I am making the I love Home Blocks from Jacquelynne Steves, which is a free Block-of-the-Month for 4 months. (Just need to sign up to get the pdf patterns). 

So here is my second block. I used rickrack this time for the roofs, and added some more rickrack around the door and above and below the windows.  I thought I would paint some "smoke" coming out of the chimneys too. I enjoy making these blocks. I used batik fabrics all from my scrap bag too! I haven't even cut out this month's block yet and November is practically here, which means the last block is coming. I better get going!!!


Close up look at my rick rack roofs and smoke out the chimneys.

This is block one that I quilted and made into an individual quilt to hang. 
Jacquelynne also has a Facebook Group that you can join where people who are making these blocks can post their blocks for others to see. I have seen a lot of really nice blocks on her FB group. Some are making their blocks themed like Spring, Fall, Winter, Summer; while others are making some Halloween, Christmas, etc. I love house blocks and I love applique, so I may make these blocks again, making it into a larger quilt too....we'll see.
Pin It Now!

  1. Ric Rac Roof! I love it! I've seen it used for flower stems before, but using it for a roof is a great idea - it adds such a fun (fanciful!) dimension :) Cute blocks - I think I saw the house from the second block, just up the street and around the corner :D

  2. I have always adored house blocks and these ones are adorable. of course all of your unique embellishments are what really put the wow into the blocks. great job I look forward to seeing the rest of your neighborhood when you finish the other blocks.
