Tiny Houses: Nos. 5 & 6

While the yard crew is working diligently to cut back all the over-grown whatevers, I made two more tiny houses.

Even with the 1800's repro fabrics, the houses are still wonky!

One of the issues when working on a long-term project with lots and lots of blocks is:  Where are you going to keep them so they won't get messed up or lost?   

The answer was provided by blogging buddy Selina of Selina Quilts (link)!

Can you guess what Selina uses?

Yes!  A lettuce box....  sheer genius, imho!   Thanks for the great tip, Selina!!!


  1. I don't see any wonk in your houses, Freda. I see uniqueness! And what a great way to store them. :o)

  2. You are using your fabrics to good advantage. That cross hatch looks just right for the windows. Lovely houses and genius storage. One you didn't have to buy it specially and two it saves it from taking up room in the landfill. Double duty! I'm proud to know ya!

  3. Your blocks are so cute! This is going to be a great project.

  4. So how many spinach containers will you need before you're through construction? The houses are so sweet. It's the differences that will make it a wonderful neighborhood once it's done. Thanks for the shout out.

  5. They are all sooooooo cute!

  6. Those little window panes on #5 are perfect! And #6 looks like bricks!

  7. Each house is so cute. Good idea for block storage.
