I had six of these not so little houses, the 16 patches are 8″ square. They are leftovers from a recent quilt that I’m not able to share yet. The roofs are leftover from my Ziggy Granny quilt. together they make an almost 16″ block. I felt that making them into houses like this there would be too much negative space.
So I started staggering them letting the 16 patches fall between the roofs of the lower houses. I had fun adding little people leftover from this quilt using my sister, Julie’s fabric. (It is fun to remember past quilts as I put together all these orphans.)
Then I filled in with a few trees and smaller houses among the upper roofs. In this way I was able to use up five of the six large houses. I could have added the sixth but I felt it was getting too wide. So I’ll have to find a home for it elsewhere in the quilt.
One section done in this memory filled quilt. Looking forward to doing more.
