March is my month for the Bee's Knees block exchange that I belong to. I have always loved house quilts, but the blocks have too many pieces -- so I simplified mine to just six pieces.
My blocks will be black and white prints. Some will be black houses with a white sky and some will be white houses with a black sky. They will all have brightly colored doors. I am asking the members of the block exchange to use a bit of their fabric stashes for the doors. I love the idea that a little piece of their stashes will be in the finished quilt.
I made this table runner to try out the block idea. I think it turned out well and I am looking forward to seeing a whole quilt from these blocks! (The runner really does have square edges - blame it on a camera/photographer issue!).
