I love it! Colours, houses, flowers - the lot!

Thank you! It was so much fun to make. I don't often just let go like that.

On looking at it again I noticed the narrow borders round each of the house blocks. That is very neat and makes a very sharp and clean effect. I wonder if I could ask you how you did it, please? Many thanks. Patricia

I folded 1 1/4 inch strips of fabric in half and laid them flat on top of each house block with folded side facing the block. Using a 1/4 inch seam allowance I stitched them down. That left the folded edge loose on top of the blocks.. Then I stitched the sashing on the same 1/4 inch seam line. When the sashing was pressed back, the little yellow borders remained on top of the blocks. I hope that makes sense. :)

Yes - it does make sense. Thank you. I'd never have worked that our for myself! You're a clever lady!

Afraid I'm not the clever one. I saw a quilt at a quilt show that had these cute little picture frame borders around some blocks so I copied the idea. I am glad that you like it, though and I hope you have fun putting the frames into some of your own, very original, quilt designs.

Love this quilt with the wonky houses and the piping around each block. I've been thinking of doing a wonky house quilt for years and still haven't tried one. One of these years.

This little quilt was a break from the tedium of a complex sampler quilt that I'd worked on for months. It was simple and just plain fun. One of these days I'll make a larger one - perhaps something holiday themed.

Are the instructions for these adorable blocks here somewhere? This is my first saved item, and I'm not sure how to find pattern. Thanks!

Angie, I don't know what happened with that comment. My goodness! What I said was that I'm glad you like this little quilt, but it was one of my early designs and I didn't make a pattern for it. I did post a free tutorial for designing you own wonky house blocks. You can find that here listed here as a pattern: http://www.craftsy.com/pattern/quilting/home-decor/design-a-wonky-house-block/19924 Would it help if I were to take measurements of the blocks and borders and send those to you?

I love wonky houses, but where do I get the patterns?

06/27/2016 Flag

I haven't made this into a pattern, but I have published a free tutorial on how to design your own paper pieced wonky house. You can find it here: http://www.craftsy.com/pattern/quilting/home-decor/design-a-wonky-house-block/19924?rceId=1467075862
