Tiny House Quilt

These tiny house blocks have been taking up space on my design wall for several months now and I needed to do something with them.  I was taking my time trying to decide what color and what size sashing to use to put them all together.  And should I make 56 blocks or are 48 enough?  Finally, I just bought a neutral tan/brownish fabric and got busy.

I realized after I started putting the blocks together that the tan fabric was very similar to the mustard yellow fabric that I had chosen months ago for my border.  Oh well.

48 blocks was plenty.  I think I could have gone a little smaller with the sashing though.  Everything is on such a small scale here.  The sashing finished at 1 inch.  My blue border is 3/4 inch and my red border is 1/2 inch.  The entire quilt is 30 inches by 38 inches and turned out a little larger than I actually wanted.  I just wanted a small quilt to hang going up my stairs.  I love the dark primary colors which give the quilt a homey, country feel.

I bought enough of the sashing fabric to use as backing so my quilt is now sandwiched and ready to be quilted.  I want to try some “big stitch quilting” on this little quilt.  I’ve been watching videos on the internet to teach myself and now I need to get some thread and large needles and give it a try.  I think I’ll just go around each block and then around each border.  I can’t wait to show you how it turns out!
