THERE GOES THE NEIGHBORHOOD

HEY BLOGGIES,

I have a quilt block to share with you today.  I heard about the NEIGHBORHOOD BLOCK PARTY on the Hilachas and My Sister Made Me Do It Blogs,

Everyone who participates makes a 12 1/2" x 12 1/2" block featuring a house.  All the blocks are grouped into bundles and then winners are randomly chosen to receive a bundle of these houses to make a quilt.

I participated last year and it was fun.  So I have been thinking and thinking about what I wanted to make for this year and decided to start with a 9 patch for the basis of my house.

On top of the 9 patch, I put a door and a roof.

 Then I added some grass below the house and a tree growing beside it.

 The tree reminds me of the red bud trees here in Texas that are starting to bloom now.  It is the first signal that spring is here are coming soon.

Hop over to see the other house blocks that have been submitted.  And if you want, read the rules and contact them if you would like to participate.  HAVE FUN!!
