Another Little Crooked House

This month the theme for one of my groups was Contrast.  My mind goes first to the B/W I love but I wanted to stretch a bit more and not be too predictable. Lots of ideas and lots of thinking.  Finally decided on contrasting Color with the B/W. Figured I would design a cute house as the main bit. Remembered my favorite photo of a Crooked Little House and thought that would make a great inspiration for this theme.  I made the little house in B/W and then on with Colors (there is also a contrast in using the pastels for the backboards of the house and brights for the boards in front).  Here is one of the little crooked houses in contrast.  BONUS!! I also have another one!!! It is still on the design wall ready to be completed later today I  hope. This one still needs the binding as well.  Busy busy later today!!!

Crooked Little House in Contrast

Here are the two pieces before cutting them and stitching/quilting them mixed up.I just feel like there will be another one made and kept as the B/W...it is just too cute!

I know!! Can you believe it??? Nice to know I haven't forgotten how. Guess it is a bit like riding a bike. Still have the raw edge applique I enjoy so much but some piecing never hurt I guess!

Great mix of the two blocks, much better blended! The contrast with the Black & White and color is wonderful.

Now a lot of people would have made the two houses, yes they contrast and done - but you took it to the next level by chopping them up and putting them together. Nicely done!

Thanks all of you! I'm glad it worked out like I saw it in my head!
