These are for the BBC, Bitty Block Committee house block theme! (I hope I didn’t make these before, I know Sil has one of my 4 inch ones… Decided to pull out an older pattern. This was one of my first wonky house blocks and is available on my blog for freeeeeee!

At the Utah State Fair…

September 6, 2013

???????????????????????????????Here is my entry for the 2013 Utah State Fair!   As you can see, I got a first place ribbon!  Woot!  Woot!

I entered it on the last day possible…  I was sewing on a hanging sleeve just in case they wanted to hang it up.  Poked my finger, and bled on my w.h.i.t.e. quilt!  Yikes!  I tried spit (gross), bleach, hydrogen peroxide, and a couple of other methods for removing stains.  I wasn’t able to get it completely out, but I ran out of time.  When I get it back, I’m going to try a couple more things before I enter it in the Utah Quilt Guild Annual Festival coming up in October…  The competition is waaaaay fierce for that one!  The quilt police have their tape measures and magnifying glasses out…  What am I thinking?!  LOL!

Thanks for visiting and being my co-enablers!!!

I’ve been sewing away on this puppy since last weekend between baby-sitting and having summer fun… I want to enter this one into a few shows coming up so I’m trying to get it finished! I just love this quilt that Silort and I swapped house blocks for… It came out so awesome! It makes me happy! It will be my “chase the winter blues away” quilt… Thanks for swapping with me Sil!!!  My Tuesday crazy quilting friend Susie helped me pin-baste it!  Thanks Susie!!!

Some of my followers may recognize a few of these wonky house blocks!

I brought the neighborhood together at last!  Thanks for swapping all these fun blocks last year Sil! (I added 1 more to make an even 5×5 layout. I think I’ll do a row of trees along the outer border…  You may recognize some of the free wonky house patterns that I provided on my blog last year!   Thanks for joining me.

Milo doesn’t like the layout choice. He’s so darn picky…  Everyone’s a critic!

This fabulous 12 inch block was made by Betz1234 on flickr… She made it for an International block swap. You may recongnize my boot house pattern, but Betz1234 added the cute dog, cat, trees, chimney, and path! I love the way it came out! Thanks for sharing the final block with me, Betz!

Oh, and btw, check out the 3-D door!  Great addition!  You all know how I feel about my 3-D stuff!

Wonky Witch House…

Just in time for Halloween!  A wonky witch house!  Add fun little snippets in the window areas to give your wonky house a little more personality!  Or you can simplify the pattern as shown above…

I was working on one of my wonky houses when one of the ladies in my Tuesday sewing group told me it looked like a witch… So, I added yellow teeth and a hat brim, and “voila”! A wonky witch house! I made a couple up for Sil and I, in brights on white to add to our collection!

Here’s the pattern:

You can delete the teeth if you want and make the center window without the corner pieces for a more “square” look. Hope you enjoy the latest installment!

These houses finish at 4 inches!

Okay, I went back and couldn’t find this pattern anywhere! So today, it’s a two-fer! LOL! Here’s the link for the Wonky Outhouses:

LOL!  I just found it in the archives even though I had searched for it!  Oh well, I’ll leave it here just in case…

Wonky Mushroom House…

And here is the latest installment for my wonky paper pieced house collection! Who wouldn’t love to live in a mushroom? I can just imagine that there is a party going on inside with gnomes and fairies, and maybe a snail or two…
(Although they always leave a trail!)

These blocks measure 4 inches finished! I am going to have the sweetest wee village when I’m finished! I’ve done the mushroom house with some different colors with a few modifications for the inhabitants so you can see how to add those tiny print people to your wonky village.

Here is the link to the pattern:

I’m thinking I should open a flickr group in case anyone wants to show what they’ve been making with my patterns…  What do you think?  I hope you enjoy your travels to Wonky Wonderland!

These are the wonky lighthouses that I have made patterns for … The flame in the lighthouse is made from 2 piece of fabric stitched down the center with the edges frayed to represent the light!  Here’s the link for the Wonky Lighthouse!  I hope you all enjoy it!  It finishes at 4 inches…

All half dozen wonky bright houses on white, together for your viewing pleasure! LOL!

Yes, those are kitty paw prints in the snow! My kittys love looking at the back door pathetically. (Even though they have a kitty house that’s 2 stories tall with windows, heat and A/C in the summer!) LOL!!!
