I am building and building, and I have so much fun with these small 3" houses!
Lucky me have got scraps from friends to put into my houses too, and that makes them even more fun and special!
I have had a wonderful oval weekend with friends at a hotel 1 hour from where I live.
The company was great, the food was great, and it was a lot of laughter and fun.
Gretha has a lot of lovely photos HERE.
Thanks Gretha, for letting me use the 2 photos below :-)
If you will like to build houses with me, I am happy to share my pattern with you.
I have drawn the house myself, from scratch, in EQ7.
I call the house block Tiny Shipshewana House, in anticipation of a new travel to Shipshewana, Indiana, USA, in November 2015.
I have not seen anything exactly like this house online, in any book or magazine,
and the block is not in the EQ7 library.
You can download the pattern in 2 parts HERE and HERE - one page to show you how to divide the foundation paper piecing pattern into sections, and the other page for printing multiple houses to 1 page.
If you are new to foundation paper piecing you can do a search online and find a lot of tutorials for the technique.
Please keep in mind that this is my pattern and I enjoy sharing it with you.
You can make as many houses as you like and turn them into quilts or smaller things, to keep, to give away or to sell, adjusting the size of the block if you so prefer,
I will ask you kindly not to teach from my pattern and
not to copy it to your blog or website.
You are welcome to refer your friends to my blog to print their own pattern :-)
To get the block to print in the right size, make sure you un-check the Fit To Page option on your pdf print page.
If you make house blocks I will be so happy if you show me a photo :-)
