My Contractor's License Came Today!

This month's Schnibble Project is Full House. My friend Bari gifted me this pattern during the holidays. I was so excited when I saw Carrie's post and knew I just had to make these little houses! Carrie's post shows several possibilities and I fell in love with this Jo number immediately! I'm making Tiny Houses and you can download the .pdf for the measurements at her blog, however will still need the pattern Full House for your construction directions.

Photo taken from Carrie's blog. Oh yes, wish this one was mine!


Have you looked at the right side of my blog? Talk about FREE projects available to us quilters this year! I can't make all of them but will sure enjoy seeing the happenings this year in blogland. While I've been working on my Tiny Houses I keep thinking this could be a two-fer! I will be able to submit it to the Schnibbles Parade at the end of the month and count is as a finish for Christmas Through The Year with Darlene & Cheryl!


Be sure to come back soon because I've got a wonderful Winter Blues Give Away not to be missed!

I've been thinking about buying that Schnibble myself. In fact I almost bought it yesterday...not sure what happened...LOL.

CUTE houses! That pattern is on my list to do...someday... when I purchase it. LOL! Lots of fun in blogland for 2012!

Those houses are very very cute!

Needled Mom said...

That will be such a cute Schnibbles quilt with those fabrics.

Did you get your winter blast yet?

Sandy said...

I was also happy with the Schnibble choice for January. I just finished mine last week and used "Countdown to Christmas". BUT, would love to have Carries!

Happy New Year!

Very nice start - I have a few going too - love house quilts so this is perfect to start the year.

Heidi said...

Hi Mary! Love your houses. You are quite a builder. ;-) I still have my quilt houses from my group to finish. I have it up to half the first border. When I get it to the second border, I am asking them to add more stitchery to the quilt. I will have to share some about this UFO very soon on my blog. Seeing how you are doing your house quilt is similar.

Wishing you a very happy and quilty 2012.

Hugs from Holland ~

I need a construction permit too!

I am soooo hooked on the 'houses' theme right now I want to make them all. I love Carrie's version and I can 'feel' another Schnibbles in my immediate future.

Sue said...

I love those house in Jo's, I have the pattern but when will I have time to make it. I'll be working on that. I've seen all the free projects boy are they tempting.

Darlene said...

I'm really glad you received your Contractor's License today because you built some adorable cottages.

Hey you can kill 2 birds with one stone (2012 Schnibbles & 2012 Christmas Through the Year). This is reason to celebrate - woohoo!!!

Gerri said...

Such cute houses, Mary. I love the fabrics you have chosen!

Andee said...

Looking good! I am doing the year of Schnibbles too and am thinking I should join the Christmas throughout the year too...I tend to make stuff all year anyway so that gives me even more motivation!

Bari Jo said...

Hi Mary! I love your houses!!!! Great job! Can't wait to see it finished! I am praying for your surgery coming up on the 6th. Take it easy and I am praying you heal quickly with no complications!

QuiltSue said...

I love your Country Houses.

Kaaren said...

I'll be making this one too, Mary...thanks to someone I know! *wink* I'm soooo into houses these days but I haven't made one...yet!

And the reason why? There are too many wonderful freebies out there that I'm making...just like your sidebar says.

Carol said...

Love your tiny houses...you did a great job with your contractor's license.

Cheryl said...

Oh, I love this version! All the quilts she has designed using those houses are just precious.

Mary said...

That will be one cute quilt when you finish!

Debi said...

Great pattern, I will have to look for that one myself. I love the scrabby blocks.

Lori said...

What a great pattern! I love it when you have a lot of setting ideas for a quilt.

AnnieO said...

I loved these house on Carrie's blog and yours are just as adorable!

Sharon said...

Like you...the Jo's Houses really calls to me! Yours looks wonderful...now to get going on one for me, but first I need to get a pattern. There are so many tempting quilt alongs on the blogs...so much inspiration, so little time. Guess I should pick and choose carefully!

Valerie Z said...

Adore your houses!!!! This is one "to do" pattern this year!! Been away most of December but home now and ready to hibernate! Sending good wishes for Friday!

Carrie P. said...

Your construction is coming right along. It is going to be a great little quilt.

Donna said...

I would like to make the Touch of Vegas quilt for my daughter, but I'm having trouble finding the pattern. Can you tell me where to find the pattern? I just can't get this pattern out of my head. I guess you could say it has become an obsession!!!!!

Kimberly said...

Hope your surgery goes well, Mary. Get well soon!
