I Won the Blogland House Blocks!

Beth at Love, Laugh, Quilt in California asked quilters to make a house block with the name of their blog on it (if applicable), and send it to her. She was celebrating the friendships we quilters enjoy in blogland. I made one that had some selvages on it, of course, and sent it to her back in October. She divided the blocks into groups of 9 and I won a batch!
.
It's going to be fun to put these together in a quilt. I really like that big Canadian flag. That's from Riel at The Q and the U. What a good idea! Every block has some red "tying them together" and I love them all. I never expect to win things, so this is quite a surprise. Thank you, Beth!

House blocks are among my favorites, and yet I have not made a house quilt so far. One of those back burner projects.

These are very cute, congrats on your win!

P.S. I received your Selvage Edge book in the mail and am devouring it.

Yay! You got my block. It is so cool to see it in the group there. And guess what? I won a set of the blocks too! I was really happy, it is my fist blogland giveaway win. I wonder if I will get your block??? That would be a neat coincidence. Thanks for the link up to my blog. :-)

Congratulations! I won a set too. i am looking forward to seeing how you gather them together. I have been toying with different ideas for mine as I wait for them to wing their way to me.

The middle house on the bottom row is mine. I am glad you received it. I also won a set but because of the ice here in Atlanta we have not had mail delivery in a week. I did see the mailman's truck today but it was in a ditch.

It will be fun to see what everyone does with their blocks.
