Hi, Quilters! It’s Wednesday, but we’ve got a first look at some very inviting quilts to get you through Hump Day. Inviting as in “come on over to my house!” because they are all from the new I Love House Blocks compilation book from That Patchwork Place! Several amazing designers, including our own Kimberly Jolly and Sarah Price, have put together 14 quilts with unique takes on the beloved house block. We DO love house blocks, and looking at all these bright abodes makes us love them even more!
Here is Kimberly and Sarah’s collaboration, called Welcome Home! Cute windows peek out from subtle four-patches, and that multicolor stripe is adorable, like the house eaves.
But we can’t just toot our own horns here; all 14 of these quilts are wonderful and different. The negative space in Village on a Hill is soothing, like living in the country with acres and acres of Mother Nature as your neighbor.
On the other end of the color spectrum, Tiny Town is a scrappy interpretation of neatly fitting row houses, where everyone knows everyone, and that’s a good thing!
Sugar Shack feels like pop art to us, and we love the color reversals for each block.
And we can’t resist these darling dwellings. It feels like a village of happy gnomes!
Sherri Fall’s neighborhood doesn’t feel complete without little trees and pinwheels for company!
But most importantly, Melissa Corry reminds us the most important part of a house — the heart!
