House Block for Kat

This is for Sew & Bee Happy - November is Kat's month and she asked for I Spy-style house blocks. I like her twist on the house block - she plans to make these blocks into an Eye-Spy quilt for her daughter, and so she asked us to add a few things for Hannah to spot. And to personalize it if we wanted to.

So I designed the block to look something like our townhouse, and I knew for sure I wanted an umbrella in there. The rest just came to me as I was going through my I Spy fabric stash.

I hope Kat likes it, and I hope Hannah enjoys Spying all the goodies here.

This is a finish for my One Thing One Week challenge over at Amy's Creative Side. Whee!

Amy's Creative Side


  1. cute brick fabric (love the umbrella, ella, ella,eh, eh, eh). I've been working on bee blocks this weekend too. Feels so good to be back with my sewing machine.

  2. How perfect. What a great idea for a bee quilt.

  3. What a great block! I love iSpy things! the boot is great!! congrats on your finish!

  4. Very cute house and I like the fabric the sky is made of too. Makes it very dramatic at the same time!

  5. Great idea! The block looks great and I'm sure it's going to be an awesome addition to the quilt.

  6. Oh how cute! She will really enjoy spying the little special touches you added. :o)
