I'm really happy to post this photo. My neighbor was kind enough to come out and hold the quilt for me to take the picture. I designed the pattern myself, so I guess I have the right to name it. I'm going to call it "My Happy Home." It reminds me of the house I lived in for thirty years. I decided to use some sashing for the quilt. I cut the strips 2 inches wide, to finish at 1 1/2 inches. The quilt uses 12 squares and finishes about 34 by 45 inches in all.
I made a free-pieced square 6 1/2 inches. The roof is 6 1/2 by 3 1/2 dark color. For the sides of the roof, I cut 2 squares 3 1/2 inches each. Draw a diagonal line and stitch to the corners. Trim and stitch to the house square. The sides are strips of white 2 1/2 inches. Finally, sew a 1 3/4 inch strip of green to the bottom of the block. Square up the block. Mine ended up 10 inches square (includes seam allowance).
