I created this block as part of a Quilt-Along. It looks like my own house (except for the fact that my house doesn't exactly sit right on the bay!) I think it's a lot of fun to make and would make a great little wall hanging on it's own, or use it in a larger quilt. The house block can be pieced in the traditional manner, or you can use the paper piecing templates provided (no additional instructions for paper piecing). Enjoy making your House By the Bay block! I'd love to see a picture of your finished block. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY 1/4 inch seam paper piecing basics if you want to do that option SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 12 1/2 inch unfinished

Recommended with this pattern

I've been making things as long as I can remember, thanks to my Mom who is a great seamstress! My favorite has been quilting for 25 years now and now that my husband and I are empty nesters I am enjoying the opportunity to expand my expertise and creativity in this art. Pattern writing is a new outlet for me and I am enjoying sharing my creations. I especially love making patterns that are encouraging for beginner quilters - I try to make sure my directions are clear and well illustrated to take the frustration out of quilting and make it a joyful process! Thanks so much for looking at my patterns!
