March Block Exchange

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!).

    I put the tutorial on the Bees Knees blog. Sorry, I guess I should have told everyone!

    I got my fabric in the mail yesterday. Do we have any measurements or instructions? Maybe I missed something I should already know this. If that is the case just let me know! 🙂
