house for Lynn

I'm in a little scrappy quilt bee over at
Lynn requested bright houses.
Is this bright enough??
I tried something new to me....
Raw Edge Details.
I just cut the door and window out
and "free motioned" all over them.
I hope Lynn doesn't mind the raw edge part.
I usually do a little needle turn applique.
I was lazy this time.
But really...
The truth is....
I wanted to experiment!!
That to me is what makes quilting
SOOOooooo
much fun!!!

The fewer the rules...
The better!!!

  1. Raw edge details definitely make this block low-fuss. Once I bought a template set for a house block but the small door and window pieces were very fiddly. I like your approach.

    I hope you had a lovely Christmas.

  3. I love the raw edge approach on small pieces. And with the house blocks - they are fun and full of character.
