    'Around the Block' quilt - great way to use up scraps

    I made this quilt many years ago; and I think I'll make another one - but with pastel colors. The pattern is called "Around the Block" by Bunny Hill Designs. From start to finish, it took about two months. I made it while my husband was off doing training for a new job. I've had a few realtors offer to buy this quilt from me. LOL! It was a great way to use up scraps. The finished sized is approximately 60 x 72. I think that I'll probably make another one, only this time, I'll make the center portion larger so it can be placed on the guest bed. And, I'll turn the 'houses' border around so that when it drapes off the edge of the mattress, the houses aren't upside down. Thanks for looking!!

      No, they weren't. Each house was pieced (not paper pieced, either). It was a TON of little pieces. And, I sewed them with 1/8" seams and pressed a lot of them open. It wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be. This was *the* pattern that got me hooked onto quilting again (after I took a break from it for more than 5 years).

                That is gorgeous. Another for my "to do" list but I think I'll take a piecing class first. Don't know if these eyes are up to those tiny pieces without a little help.
