Building the Bedroom - WannaBees House Challenge

Our summer is flying by! I know for some of you it has just barely started, but my kids have been out since before Memorial Day and have to go back to school August 9, so we are on the downhill side.  CRAZY!

You'll be happy to know that I've actually gotten back to my sewing machine.  It still works.  YAY!

I'm making some progress on my WannaBees house block.  Here' what I have so far:

Yes, Allison, it's fused.  I am not of the belief that fusible is just another F word; I am of the belief that applique is a total pain in the neck.  Also, done is better than perfect.

I adjusted my fabrics to include a little more of the gold so the ugly challenging fabric wouldn't jump out and scream at you quite so much.  I think it makes cute lampshades and the pieces are almost the right size to prove Bonnie Hunter's rule that if a fabric is still ugly, you just haven't cut it small enough. 

Next step:  deciding on what stitch to use and how much to stitch before sandwiching.



  1. Love this: "if a fabric is still ugly, you just haven't cut it small enough." Made me laugh.

  2. Jennifer,
    the bedroom is so cute! Bravo on your use of the focus fabric. The lamps are adorable.


Thanks for joining the conversation!
