WIP Wednesday

I finished up my block for Cara from Me? A Mom? for our Sew Beautiful Bee.  She asked for "home" blocks.  She is making them into a quilt to donate to a family with a baby girl in NICU. This was a fun block to make. 


I also made some progress on the back for my hexagon quilt.  I'm using all those triangle scraps that result when cutting hexagons.  This block is about 17" tall.  I have five more to go. 


Finally, this is what I find when things get too quiet around here.



I usually put a lock on the dog kennel so they can't get in, but I forgot this morning.  Why is this their favorite place to play?

  1. Because it usually has a lock on it? The house is really cute, and I love the triangles. Great colors!

  3. Cute house!

    They are a very busy bunch! Now I want to know which of them was the leader and what they said to the other(s) to get everything in there. That had to be a funny thing to watch - you should set up little spy cameras to catch the action!

  6. I love all of the little details on the house block - the shades and the flowers - beautiful.

    There is something about small boxes that kids just love. If dog hair/germs are a kennel problem, get them a big box to play in. :) They are way too cute.

  10. Adorable picture of the kids! A kennel is just like a cardboard box to kids but better because they can see out. At least this time while they were being too quiet they weren't making a big mess.

  14. When my daughter was little she loved to play in cubby holes. And, she really wanted one of those plastic doggie igloos to use for a playhouse.

    Love the home theme block with the sun, and even flowers!
