A house of lemons!

When a friend asks for a house block that represents you....you make one!

My friend Deborah from Simply Miss Luella was 'Queen Bee' with her bee group a while back. She requested original house blocks from all of her bee friends. I was not part of that bee, but I wanted to join in the fun.  The block had to measure 12 1/2 x 12 1/2 finished.....so I set about making a house block that represented me. I was given some lemon fabric for the house and of course, had to use striped fabric for the eves. What home is complete without a quilt on the line?

   

Every home needs a furry friend, so I added the pup behind the quilt.



And a hand lettered signature block so that she won't forget who made this for her! I had so much fun creating this little house.  My dear sweet Deborah....enjoy!!

Linking to Sew Cute Tuesday over Better Off Thread.  Wait until you see the bicycle quilt she has on her site!  What fun!!!

Whilst I am not a fan for house blocks I just love this one.

Especially the 3 D quilt block in front of the house. How clever.

Lovely execution. you should be very pleased.

Your house block is wonderful, Vicki! Love the quilt on the clothesline and the doggy. You really are a creative genius! Aren't we lucky quilting is such a fun way to express ourselves?!
