Manor House block

 I am doing the Sew Sweet Bee again this year.  Amy from A Quilting Sheep, http://www.aquiltingsheep.com/, has this month and she chose manor houses from https://bloominworkshop.wordpress.com/2013/01/17/random-sampler-qal-manor-house/

I don't think the big polka dots match very well.  I decided to make an orange and yellow house.

I have to admit that the directions for the roof was kind of confusing when I ended up with this.  I had to iron it and then trim it to the right size.  I thought that fabric looked kind of like tiles and would make a good roof fabric.

I had to share Custard who got to the cat bed on the sewing table first.  She gets all twisted in there and it is hard to find her head.  LOL

There is no school today because of ice, so I am going to spend the day in the sewing room working on my quilt.  It is Spirit week at school, they have their hoopcoming for basketball this week so I hope the kids don't miss anymore days, they have spent a lot of time on their outfits.  Tomorrow is western day, I was going to wear my husband's red flannel shirt, but instead I am going to wear my t-shirt with cats that are wearing cowboy hats and boots.  Of course, I'll also wear my TX earrings.

What are you doing today?

That fabric makes great roof tiles Missy. LOL I could not figure out which end was which on Custard.

💛 the house block. I don't know how custard can lay in that position. That would hurt😉

Sweet block and I like the fabric for the roof. Oh you got the ice, we just got snow, and back to really cold. Brrr.

We missed the ice, sorry you had some except it allowed you to quilt!
