Extra blocks - finished

I had to cut out extra pieces to use as a demo on how to make the butter churn block and the milking day block for my guild meeting last week.  Today I decided to go ahead and sew those blocks together, so I wouldn't have loose pieces laying around. 

Here they are, together with the original demo blocks.  I might add sashing and a border and make them into a little wall hanging or I might save them for a larger project.  I haven't decided yet.  At least they are no longer just loose patches.

Houses - all in a row

For our Moda class this year, we are doing a row quilt.  The first row consists of houses with tree and star blocks in between.  For this month, we were supposed to make the houses.  Here are mine, all lined up in a row.  I was going for something fun and whimsical this year.  The finished quilt is twin bed sized, so I wanted something that a little kid would (hopefully) enjoy looking at and sleeping under.
