Welcome to the Neighborhood

February was Kris's month for the Snip.Sew.Send bee. She wanted little trees and houses and, I must admist, I was totally intimidated by this block! That's why I kept putting it off. It was silly of me, though, because it was a lot of fun to make.

The tree is based off of the flower tutorial that Kris posted on her blog a little while ago. I didn't have enough fabric to complete the block, but Kris can add more fabric to it when it arrives.

The house is my favorite. It's a dog house! And just in case you couldn't tell it was a dog house, I appliqued a little dog onto the block. So there you go. If you recognize the colors, I used the scraps from the fabrics I used to make the Zakka pillows. I love these colors. Love them. Hopefully Kris will like them too.

This was fun fun fun. I think I need one of these neighborhood quilts now!

SO cute! Who can't love a little dog house with a dog sitting by it?

What a great idea! I love the little doghouse. And the tree is awesome. I know exactly what you mean too... I think I may have to make a neighborhood quilt now too. :)

Cute dog house. I thought of making a tree from her same tutorial. It turned out great. =]

I'm sorry I'm late with the house block, but I'll work on it this week.

I'm sending out my fabrics today!! I'll post my directions on our flickr group.
