Last night while it snowed and the winds whirled outside, I was warm and cozy in sewing room.  I am happy with the progress I made

I finished up the sq. blocks and filled the design wall, to get a feel for the layout.  That large blank block in the lower middle is for a monogram.  The pattern also, calls for 1/2 sq triangles(background fabric) on every other corner of the inside blocks.  Which would give it two different block types(regular sq & snowball)  I like it this way, but will try the 1/2 sq triangle on a few to see what I think.

Most of the night was spent roofing my houses.
It seems, like there are house blocks all over the place these days and while I like them I wasn't convinced I needed to make any.
Until, I saw these made up into a little quilt at my LQS.  It is a simple quilt but I fell in love with it and kept going back for second look.  
 Obviously, I couldn't resist and the kit came home with me.  I am modifying the original just a bit, to make it bigger.   More to come, stay tuned!
