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!
