Wisdom House Block 3

I've been stitching some too... been going back and forth between the cross stitch and the quilt blocks... here is a block completion...

Wisdom House Block #3
12" x 20"

The colors in the block updates are off... way off... the fabrics are warm and faded homespuns... it just seems that I finish a block in the evening when the natural light for the day is gone... I'm thinking you will be surprised when the entire quilt is completed and pieced together and photographed in the yard on a sunny day... ;-)

Yesterday was a gorgeous 80 degrees with sunshine and humidity! It was a perfect day enjoyed in the garden... getting the flower beds ready for a Summer of blooms and tomatoes!!! Oh YUM!


  1. Cute little house. It gets harder to stay inside and do crafts this year when the weather starts to get nice. We have been cooped up all winter so when we get a warm sunny day you just want to be outside. Maybe you can quilt by the tomato patch?

  2. I love the tall skinny shape! I bet that is going to be a fun one to make!
    We have a peek of Spring now too....... finally! But can you believe they are talking a possibility of snow showers again this Fri.????

  5. Even with the not having the true colors the Wisdom House is wonderful!! Keep on stitching...and stitching ....and stitching...XO

  6. Your hands certainly have not been idle! Keep up the good work, it looks great. I look forward to seeing it all done!

  7. I love the house! Can't wait to see the whole piece!
