July 2014 – NELA MQG has elected to begin a House Quilt Project. We will be creating an assortment of house blocks to be made into a quilt top. We will be creating for ourselves, so are free to create what we want, when we want. No pressure and a lot of fun.
Below are inspiration and resources for both paid and free patterns:
Pinterest board .. Inspiration: http://www.pinterest.com/ramonamp/quilt-it-house/ While this board is mainly for inspiration, there are some free patterns included in this board as well.
An awesome free resource: I downloaded this Home Sweet Home for free. You have to have a Windows operating system. The patterns print as template or as a foundation if you want to paper piece.
Houses with contemporary architectural feel by Johanna Masko, $12.00.

…. a few of my personal favorites are below. Click on the image to be taken to the pattern site.
I even found Yako Saito’s, Mystery (House) Quilt blocks at the QuiltMania site. Be careful, there are only four of the blocks available. One block is for sale three times in different languages. I missed that and bought all six thinking I was getting all six blocks. Two blocks do not seem to be available for some reason.
Click on the photo below for another link. This may be in French only, I can’t tell. Not sure how critical that is. These have the pattern laid out in a diagram that is pretty self explanatory. 18 Euros which currently exchange to $25.
