  I'm trying to come up with a block for my "Quilted Angels Online Quilt Club" February block challenge.  The theme is Home is Where the Heart Is.  I really didn't want a house with a heart on the door.  That's the first thing that came to my mind and obviously would probably be the easiest and quickest.  But... oh no, not me.  When I am really pressed for time, how about I pick a block that has to be paper pieced.  Nothing quick or easy about that!  I found this on Pinterest.  It screams me, just because it's red, white, and blue.

Heart and Home paper pieced quilt block by PieceByNumberQuilts, $3.00I also found this on Pinterest and this is actually what I had in mind but I think I need to modify it a bit.  I want my house to be bigger and I don't think I need the moon and star.  Looks like I need to work on this in EQ7.  

Which one do you like best?


  1. I vote the second one but keep the moon and star... Just change the colors to yellow, the white kind of makes it washed out. The first block is nice but a little "old hat" for my likings.

  2. I like the second one - but I am with you in thinking it needs a bigger house.

  3. I like the first one for several reasons. Love the red, white, and blue. You've got the heart, and the flags stand for America--home.

  4. I agree with Linda, I love the first patriotic one. It just says so much, and I wish I could make it too. As i help do quilts for Ft. Hood,TX. really nice-cant beleive you got less than a handful of comments!
