A little house for Jane

The lovely Jane from Where Jane Creates was the Wombat Stew Queen Bee for October. She requested a 'houses' theme. I have been slacker  just a tad busy so I only got around to sewing her block on the weekend.

I had wanted to design a block that was based around our South Australian abode. It's a 1900's Bluestone Villa with a veranda.

Our house - taken on a misty morning. The white is not's crushed granite.
It would seem that great quilty minds think alike - Kristy had run the pic of my house through EQ7, to come up with this fab paper piecing block. I literally squealed like a little girl when she send me through the pattern!

Now Jane lives at No. 34 and one of her only requests was that we somehow manage to incorporate 34 into our design. I put mine on the front door.

No 34.

I had this cute little FQ that I picked up at spotlight that was perfect for a cobblestone pathway.

And to add a touch of whimsy I used Lizzy House Pearl Bracelets for the pencil pine - one of Jane's fav fabric lines!

I am so so pleased with how this turned out. I am going to do another one in time to put in our home when it is a bit more liveable.

The block in now in Jane's possession....mine was the last block to arrive. I can't wait to see how all the blocks look put together!


  1. Love! It turned out beautifully Marieka! I especially love that we quilty gals think so alike! ;)

  2. I love it! And it's even better in real life :).

  3. This is adorable! And very clever. I'm loving that cobblestone path - it looks almost three dimensional.
