Housewarming Block #5 House Part 2

Hello Again

This is the fabric that I decided to use:

 Here is what you will need for one block.  Please note that I left the paper on the pattern pieces so keep everything straight. 

 

 

Here are the instructions for this quick and easy block. 

Starting from the top of the house and working down you will need for the roof and chimney the following:

Two 2 x 2.5 blue rectangles, two cream 1.5 x 2.5 rectangles and a cream 2.5 x 4.5 rectangle and lay out:

 

For the second row, you will need the following and put together like this:

Pattern A, Pattern B, Pattern C, and pattern D, and a Reverse Pattern A. 

 

For the bottom part of the block, this needs to be put together in segments and then sewn together.  For the first part, I found it easiest to do the door and the sides of the door first, and then the top of the door. 

 You will need for the door:

Two blue 1.5 x 4 inch strips, and a cream 2 x 4 rectangle.  Sew together like so:

Now to the top of the door add a blue 2 x 3.5 rectangle. 

Now add a 1.5 x 5.5 strip to the side of the door, like this, and then set aside.

 

 

 

Now for the windows.  There are 2 windows.  This goes together in segments also and I found that doing the same size strips first was the easiest way to do it.

 

Take the remaining three 1.5 x 2.5 blue strips and the two 1.5 x 2.5 cream strips and sew together like this:

 

 

Now take one 1.5 x 5.5 blue strip and sew to the bottom of the windows.  Then take the remaining blue strip and add to the top of the windows so that they create a frame.  You should have one remaining cream strip, 1.5 x 5.5, and sew that to the top of the frame. 

 

Now for the last two parts:  Take the door frame and the windows and sew together to create the bottom part of the house.  Then add the bottom and top together and you have the house block finished! 

 

It is so easy that, even after cutting the block out, it only took less than 15 minutes to put it together.  Enjoy! 

About cozyquilts

Hello and welcome to my website. My name is Donna. My hubby is retired and I am still working from home. I have twin daughters and am blessed with 4 grandchildren. We are owned by 4 cats that love to supervise and are very nosy. I have been quilting since 1996. In addition to making quilts for my family and friends, I also make charity quilts for Marjoree Mason Center and Valley Children's Hospital. Marjoree Mason Center is a local organization here that helps and supports battered and abused women and children get out of abusive relationships. Every Christmas I make several baby quilts for the women, along with a small stuffed animal. Valley Children's Hospital is a new venture for me that just started this year. Every month or so I drop off a couple of quilts along with a small toy, for the children. I use a lot of bright, fun fabrics to help cheer them up. I do special order quilts but please be advised in advance as I work full-time in addition to quilting, I only do a few during the year. Also, it may take up to 6 months to a year to completely finish a quilt as my sewing time is limited. I only do applique or patchwork and will incorporate machine embroidery into my patterns, when requested. Thank you for visiting and I hope to see you and friends again soon.
