PostSubject: Trying to find a pattern   Wed Jun 25, 2014 9:09 pm

I'm going to be a little vague here, because I'm not sure what I want.  I'm thinking of a house/village/city theme.  I don't want each of the houses alike.  What I'm thinking is a row type quilt.  Row of houses and maybe even buildings like a school, fire station, etc.  Then the rows separating each row I am planning to do a paper doll type applique.  Something very primitive.  I can't seem to find a PP pattern with buildings/houses.  All the ones I find include a pp pattern where all the houses are identical or the pattern is part of a BOM that is $30 to $35 per month and I don't even like the pattern that much.  Here is a picture of the type houses, except different looks.

Here's another sample of what I'm thinking of. Actually this a closer example of what I'm thinking about.

I cant say as I have seen anything like that Joann but I sure like the second one you pictured, do you have any info on it, its kinda cute. What about the 'round the block' style house quilt patterns, could you take the house blocks and put them in rows on your quilt? Pinterest seems to have a lot of images under House Block Quilts when I looked just now, dont know if thats any help

I have about 15 different house patterns, both mine and from others, not necessarily of compatible sizes.  To my thinking, the second one you posted would be greatly improved with trees and gardens between.  I also have barns, a church and an old schoolhouse.  What size blocks were you interested in?

Checked my two reference books and both gad what you are looking for. B H and G 501 quilt blocks has 12 different house patterns.

The second book is 5.500 quilt block designs byt Maggie Malone has 57 blocks. They are graphed so you would have to figure it out. The first book are just drawings that are sized for 4 " block.

Marynell, I think any size would work as I can always enlarge.

Anita, those look great! I think I'll buy the book on Amazon. A used one is very cheap. I ended up buying 3 of them and didn't remember, but still had a Ricky Timms book in my shopping cart, so got that one too. I must have liked it at one time.

I'm firming up my idea, but struggling a little. I'm thinking of a theme that's something like "No Matter Where You Live". Rows of houses/buildings: In a city, In a small village, In the country/woods, on the water/beachy. Then between rows of applique of children.

I purchased these books. I could, of course, use marynel's patterns, but need these books for the ideas. I may end up asking if you can share your patterns, Marynel.

About 10 years ago, I made a quilt for a fire department fundraiser: lots of houses in a forest. Just like my community. as an afterthought, I decided to throw in a few purple hearts. that caused most of the comments I got, all positive. One extremely old widow lady thanked me for remembering her husband (WWII). I tried to come up with a variety of building styles to represent our community. I ran into a problem of scale. The more complex house sizes just didn't work for my little quilt.

Don't I know it, TMM.

This is initial plans for a quilt when the company I work for finishes a new hospital they are building. It won't be done until the fall of 2015.

I came on specifically to tell you about the Quilter's Newsletter site, which I see Anita let you know about. I didn't look closely at how it will work, but thought it may be only a block or two each month all year long? But that you could purchase the whole pattern all at once. Even though it's Christmas I did think it would be easy enough to make some changes so it wouldn't be just Christmas.

The latest one you said you saw is stunning! Looks quite complicated to me. . . does it to you?

I've gotten my books and 2 are really good. I can combine the blocks to come up with a plan. This is an after the first of the year. Too many others right now.
