This is the second block for the Bee Inspired quilting group. When Dyline announced her intent to have us all do Vacation House blocks I was a little disappointed. It seemed there wouldn't be a lot of choice in how we made them. As it turned out, if I did math a little better, I'd have seen that there wasn't any choice. She sent three pieces and they only could have been used in one way. However, I messed up cutting and my last piece was about 1.5 inches too short to use. Good thing we were allowed to use our own fabric, as the blue leafy fabric was mine!
In the end, I liked my block ok, but what I really liked was the idea of making my own Vacation Home quilt. I can picture a little neighborhood of houses with different embellishments and I really want to do it, so thanks for introducing me to it, Dyline.
