Twelve Trees, Six Houses, and One Kitten

My six tree blocks are complete.  That's a total of twelve trees, a mini forest.

Next, the house blocks.  I started with simple shapes, a rectangle for the window, and a few squares.

Super easy piecing - just sew the squares to windows.

Here squares have been sewn to both sides of the windows, with an additional strip of matching fabric under the window.

The strip over the top of the window is a little thicker than the bottom strip.
The strips on the left are going to be the doors.

Homes under construction!  An assortment of doors, windows, and walls.

The bottom sections of all six houses are complete.

My little helper, Trail Mix is keeping my project box organized.  Thank you! 

The roof sections of the houses are paper pieced to accommodate the angles.


And the roofs are on.

At this point, Trail Mix discovered the ironing board is a toasty warm spot.  Awwww!  Isn't she cute?

A few simple strips and squares and the chimneys are on.

A little blue sky and ~ Voila!  Six new homes, ready to move in.

Next up:  The Lighthouse block.

Have a super day!
