Home Sweet Home Blocks

I've had a day's holiday from work today and it was a grim day, so what perfect weather for sewing.  Yesterday I read Lily's Quilts blog written by Mary Emmens about Siblings Together charity and requiring some blocks for making boys quilts. More about it here.

She requested blocks in blue,green, grey and black in a block devised Jera Brandvig of Quilting in the Rain blog.  I decided to have a go.

Excuse the fuzzy pic. I started with a nine patch
The patches were cut diagonally and rejoined. I could now see why it was called Home Sweet Home block- see the house shapes? Yes, it took me a while!

Before I knew it by the afternoon I made 7 blocks.

I was able to pull out all sorts of fabrics, batiks, novelty, mottled fabrics. Made quite a mess of my stash, that'll need a sort out but it was a lot of fun. Shame I have to go back to work tomorrow.
