Welcome To My Home!


Welcome To My House! 


This is my newest quilt block design.

It is a 12.5" House Quilt Block
made entirely from jelly roll strips.
Only 1 strip of each fabric print is needed for this block.


I used this Autumn Love Jelly Roll 
by Lori Holt for Riley Blake.

I apologize for not having a completed project to show you.
I almost dropped out of the hop
but decided to post this instead
in an effort to meet my commitment.

I have been sewing,
but have a lot of other projects I need to get done, too,
and not enough time to sew.

It has been a busy time of doctor's appointments and tests
for me for the last month and more appointments are still coming.

Free Tutorial for my Jelly Roll House Block


Since I do not have a  finished project I am also posting this fall house quilt 
which I made nine years ago.


This is my favorite fall house quilt.

This has been warming my walls in autumn every year
since I began blogging ... 


is one of my first blog posts.


The center is a house panel.

I added borders of my own design 


 I quilted it to show off the features,
like these pumpkins which has a little extra batting tucked in to make them rounder.
I always love when the weather turns cooler and I can hang this quilt again.

I apologize for not having any new finished projects to show you.
I almost dropped out of the hop
but after talking to our wonderful blog hop host, Carol,
 I decided to post this instead
in an effort to fulfill my commitment.

I have been sewing,
but have a lot of projects I need to get done, too,
and not enough time to sew.

It has been a busy time of doctor's appointments and tests
for me for the last month and more appointments are still coming.

I hope to have a new quilt for you soon.

Please visit all the other quilty homes today ...

Hello! Thank you for your post. I hope all goes well for you with the doctor's visits. I know how stressful and time consuming that can be. Good luck. You are in my thoughts.

What a great idea to make a house entirely from strips! I'm sure the finished product will be just lovely, as is your Autumn quilt.

That is the cutest little house and the fall quilt is really beautiful...thank you for sharing! Life has a way of smacking us on the side of the head when it comes to our health. We never know what tomorrow will bring, but I'm thinking positive thoughts for you today. xo

As soon as I saw your house block I thought it looked liked Lori Holt's fabric line. Ha, funny how certain designers have their "look". Glad you made at least one block sweet Pat. I hope things are okay with you with all those tests and doctor visits. Sending happy thoughts your way. Hugs.

Life gets in the way of the fun stuff, like quilting and blogging. I can relate to that for sure. I hope you are ok. It was a good idea to stay in the hop - your autumn quilt is so sweet and must be fun to pull out and decorate with. I love welcoming fall - especially because our summers are quite warm. It is such a good feeling to have cooler temps. Take care.

Danette said...

I will look forward to your jelly roll strips house block because I have jelly rolls that need to be used. Your Fall quilt is lovely! My blog hop day is tomorrow and I have used a house panel on my project, also.

Nice that you were able to show us your block design, it's great. Also love what you did in the past with that panel. The quilting gives it great personality. Hope things will be OK in your life soon.

Really like your large house block using jelly roll. Love your pumpkin patch quilt. Thank you for sharing both.

LJ said...

You're sewing and that's what's important. Thank you for sharing that most adorable pumpkin cottage quilt. What a super idea to stuff the pumpkins with a bit more batting. Excellent.

Thanks for sharing both houses, great work!

Who among us hasn't had life hijack our best laid plans? So glad you were able to share your lovely project from the past. Thanks for taking the time to join in. I'll be back to see your tutorial when you find time to post it; no rush at all.

Pat, first I am very sorry that this last month has been full of doctor's appointments and you have not had time to fit any sewing. Sewing is certainly a stress reliever. Your autumn quilt is wonderful. When I first came to your blog today, I was pleased to see that you had posted your house block from a jelly roll. That is fantastic. I debated where to place my post and even if I should post two posts. Anyhow, I love it and your instructions are absolutely amazing. I like your tip to press the seams open for a flat block as that is the goal of most of us. Thank your for participating in the hop and sharing two great posts for it, in total. I pray that God will bless you with better health.

Dione Gardner-Stephen said...

Benita Skinner said...

Wonderful house design, Pat - especially because you used jelly rolls! <3

Kay Holm said...

I love Lori Holt fabrics so your project caught my eye. What a sweet little house. Can’t wait to watch for updates.

Carla said...

I think a quilt block is a complete project and you even made a complete tutorial. It's wonderful, Pat. Great use of a jelly roll. I'm always trying to find a way to use those rolls. Thank you!!

Angie said...

Your house block is so awesome! I love all the colors. I love the autumn love by Riley Blake too, I've been trying to collect a piece or two of them here and there. They are amazing! Lori Holt has cool fabrics! Your fall quilt is so pretty. Lovely colors there as well. Have a great day!

Theresa said...

This is awesome, love that is made with jelly rolls.

Susan said...

Thanks for the tutorial in the next post. I see you've been doing a lot of jelly roll posts lately!
