Doing pretty good so far…

At this rate, I’ve averaged three a day instead of one.  Can you tell I’m taking advantage of my enthusiasm right now. It feels good to have a head start.  I love making these tiny houses…they are 3” of sweetness!

24 houses finished

I lay out the little blocks and my granddaughter likes looking at them and finding all the things in the windows.  We’re both having fun with them.

Oh, The are so cute! I see you chose the paper piecing method, too. I think I'll have better success with those...when I get started!

Your houses look wonderful!
I use PP now, started with templates on the first house and on the large house but it think I stay with PP.
Happy sewing// Karin på Ösäter

I like the way you using the little borders around the houses! I think that I also going to do this ;-)) because I don't like the little cornerstones. Thank you for showing this. I also put little persons, animals or flowers in the windows!

Wow, those house are just adorable. There is no doubt in my mind that you'll finish this sew along well ahead of everyone else. I would love to see these houses in person, they sound so tiny, 3" but look much bigger. Must be you choice of fabric! Great Job!
