Easy House Quilt – No Paper Piecing

Easy House Quilt Video Tutorial

I just love house quilts, but can’t stand paper piecing. Jennie Doan at Missouri Star Quilt Company has a new video for Natalie’s Won’t You Be My Neighbor house quilt. It uses two layer cakes and a charm pack. Of course, you can always cut 10″ and 5″ squares from yardage or your stash.

There is NO paper piecing. One layer cake makes the house. A half layer cake makes the roof. Another half makes the space between the house and another half makes the space between the roofs. A charm pack makes the windows and door that are Heat and Bonded on, then stitched around the edges. Do that stitching before you join the houses. The roof lines get sewn in a strip, as do the houses. Then sew them all together. Now that’s sew quickly. BOOM!

If you don’t have a 1/2 hexie ruler like Jennie does, just cut a 60 degree corner off each side of the folded 10″ block. That’s 3.5″ in from each edge. And this is where the rotating cutting mat comes in handy. I just love mine.
