Bee Imaginative - January 2010

I am participating in the Bee Imaginative Block Swap which is starting this month.

First up is Kerri from Lovely Little Handmades, who is building her own village of mini houses in the spirit of this quilt made by Ingrid Press. 

Originally uploaded here.

Kerri's choice of fabrics is the fresh and modern color combination of red and aqua, and included some much sought after Gnome fabric by Heather Ross.


The finished block measures 15 1/2 inches square and the background fabric is Kona Cotton in Snow.



To see more of Kerri's little gnome village go to the Bee Imaginative Blog or the Bee Imaginative Flickr Group.

    That bottom bunch was definitely inspired by you...like the one you made with just three strips per block and I just love making these quilts with just several rows of squares and the rest solids!! I really think most of what I do is from ideas I get from you...especially the straight line quilting!:) Thanks bunches!!
