Building houses

I've started building my Happy Houses.  I went through my stash and picked out brightish fabrics.  I was surprised at how many I had accumulated as they are not really my thing.  These colour combinations are right out of my comfort zone.  I am doing the sashings last.  I hope my houses don't give their future recipients nightmares.  I'm doing a few pretty ones and some more boyish ones.  It will be interesting to see how everyone's are matched up.


  1. Your little houses look great! Can't wait to see what you end up with. It is a good way to use up those scraps too.

  2. You happy little builder! Your houses look great - look, I have never really been a 'brights' person, but it is an acquired taste and I am coping with it quite well - kinda very happy!

  4. I like the look of those houses, you are doing a great job. I made a batch to practice as patchwork is not something that I do often, now I just need to make some to swap.
