Pink Palaces {RSC October 2017 + IB Giveaway}

I did technically get three pink blocks done for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge done in October! These three pink blocks bring my house block total to 42.


Originally I had planned to make 48 blocks, I realized that butting all of the blocks right up next to each other might look a little odd so I think I am done making blocks for this top. My plan is to put sashing in between the rows of houses to make each row of houses look like they each are on their own road.

I realized that I never had an Island Batik giveaway in October, so that's on the agenda for today as well! Up for grabs is 20 2.5 inch strips from the Northern Woods Collection along with a 1/4 yard cut of one of the brown prints! I used the other half of the strips in my Faceted Friendship Star quilt.



Want to win? Any comment on this post is entered to win and I'll pick a winner on Tuesday!

Our winner is Dianne from Little Penguin Quilts!

  24. I'm glad you've decided to sash your house blocks. They each deserve a little frame to set them off! I saw a house pattern recently that used little triangular trees as separators and that looked fun, too. Thanks for offering a give away, too :)

  41. Thank you for a chance at the batiks. I noticed another blogger was adding trees or bushes between her house blocks, just to space them out. Or maybe little embroidered flowers in the sashing? Or even a small car... A78mandel at yahoo dot com
