One of my favorites...

Do you have this book? If you like houses, you must look into 'Home Sweet Home' by Deborah Harding and Laura Fisher.
The blocks in this quilt are only 4 inches square. Click on the picture to see the close up. 


 My little house is two and a half inches tall.
  Imagine an entire village out of little houses made of sticks and stones!

 Are you inspired?

 How many baskets of scraps will this take?

If you haven't been here, you don't know what you are missing out! 


  1. omgosh this is one of my favorite books too!
    now you know I have to go get it out
    I am finally ALMOST done with the quilt I am working on I am so ready to work on something fun again!!!!
    ok so how many houses will you make?
    and sorry to tell you but it probably wont take even 1/2 of a basket of scraps!
    don't they just seem to multiple?

  2. I got this book at a used book sale recently and I just love it. Your tiny houses sound magical!

  3. I have always been a lover of house quilts. Love your wee block! And thanks for the recommendation. I'm going to look it up right away!

  4. I like the look of that book. Your little house is so sweet. 2 and a half inches is tiny!! Inspired? Yes! I might have to try a teeny tiny house.

  5. I'm going to have to look up this book! I think I'd enlarge the blocks, though. That's a LOT of work for one quilt. Oops, I mean a LOT of fun!

  6. That book looks very cool, I need to check it out. Can't wait to see what you do with this....

  7. I love this book too and have often pondered making a quilt inspired by the cover quilt. Unlike Nifty, I LOVE the small size of it, and your cute little house.

  8. that quilt is fabulous!! what fun to give that a whirl 15 minutes at a time, not only how many baskets of scraps but how many 15 minutes?


  9. So tiny and cute! This seems like a very fun book. I love your tiny hut! The possibilities are endless...

  10. I like the sound of the book and I hadn't even known about it. I'm amazed at your teeny tiny house, it's adorable.

  11. Fantastic quilt! I'm going to have to look for this book.

  12. I recognize that cover. I believe that's one of the books I lusted after back before I learned that really nice books like that one make me so ill. Color me frustrated :-P


I appreciate you taking the time to read my posts. I would love to hear your thoughts. Thank you!
