Quilting again

Remember the old blocks from the Habitat for Humanity quilt?
I found some gray fabric for roads in the “development” and pulled the blocks out again. I did a quilt layout with streets, and now I’m ready to pull out some green fabric and start cutting triangles. I hope to have this put together so it can be given away or auctioned off before Christmas.
Thanks for all the encouragement you gave me to pull out of my quilting slump.

THAT is going to make a great auction quilt for Habitat!

Really cute! I have some house rows I've been planning to put sashing of some kind between them. Thanks for the idea to make it streets.

Sheri (and all),
Feel free to use the streets idea. My streets are going to be 8- 1/2 inches finished. The white lines are going to be machine satin stitched down the middle of the streets (a nice gray print). My house blocks are 12-inches finished size. The green triangles will be figured out tomorrow. You can use more 12-inch house blocks and make your quilt bigger. Borders can be much wider.

Great idea! I particularly like the block which looks as though it's under construction.

I love the house still under construction, really helps 'paint' the picture. Do you have any green fabrics with tools on it?
