the little house challenge subject came up again last week on the Stashbuster yahoo group. i had printed some foundation patterns for these, but they were 3" and 5", neither of which excited me. but kaaren, a fellow quilter just over the northern border, kindly sent me her 4" version. yesterday decided to play out of my scrap basket and try them out. caution: they are fun to make and i got 4 done fairly quickly. the most difficult part was choosing the fabrics. my scrap basket isn't that full so i pulled out the large shoebox of strips. i decided to make red doors on all of them in homage to my first quilting teacher, who had a shop called "the red door" quilt shop and then used black for chimneys. i don't think i'll make 365 of them, but enough for a small quilt anyway. love the scrappiness of them!
