I love houses. Always have. Always will. This started out as a Block of the Month using the pattern from the book by Fig Tree Quilts. It is ending very differently.

Original BOM

All houses and no birds would be wrong, no? Those little circles? Cut the freezer paper with my cricut - ironed onto the wool - and then cut them out! The bird is a chip board shape from my scrapbooking days and the fabric is home dec weight.

This is an example of a simple tracing onto steam a seam lite 2 - see the next photo for the item I traced.

The traced item is on the right. It is a house cut out of felt (a child's toy from the '80's that my children are not yet allowed to touch... I'm so mean. But - this way I can use the image again and again!

Love the marti michelle house template - but STARCH STARCH STACH iron iron iron cut cut cut sew sew sew ....

And keeping track of all the little pieces can be challenging...
