One of the most amazing quilts I've seen was at the Seven Sisters Quilt Show in San Luis Obispo recently. I have been fascinated with Log Cabin patterns and house patterns for a long time, in part because I have moved so often. Lots of ideas have been percolating in my brain about how I would do a quilt of many houses. Then I saw this!
Building Houses from Scraps website.
I don't know if I would make one myself, but it certainly gets the creative juices flowing!
