This was a lot of fun!  I have to thank Madame Sam of Sew We Quilt for adding a hop with stitching!  So many thanks to Debbie of Busy As Can Be and Cyndi of Stitch Stitch Stitch for the great patterns they created and of course to Jane of Jane's Fabrics and Quilts for being our cheerleader!

It was so hard choosing just one pattern that I have plans to complete each one and make a few gifts from them!  The one I choose for the hop reminded me of my home and I tried to add some flowers that I used to have until work being done on my house a few years ago destroyed them...but I told my husband that after this, we are planting them again this Spring!

Here are a few pictures of my house, it is temporarily on a stretched canvas until the other blocks are completed to make a wall-hanging for my Aunt.



 
This was a lot of fun!  I would definitely participate in another one - they are not scary at all! LOL!
