Here is the church, here is the steeple...
What's a little Hillside village without a little village church? As I was working my way up the hill on my Hillside Houses quilt, I decided I wanted to make one of the houses into a church.
The turquoise house seemed like a good candidate. It already had one long side with a row of windows. All it needed was a steeple to make it into a church.
I cut out two rectangles of the church fabric, and a few squares for the roof and for the red house in the background.
From the squares, I made half square triangles and added them to the church fabrics.
Then I trimmed down the church fabrics to make the steeple.
Next step was to add the other parts of the red house in the background.
Here is how it looked when I added it into the rest of the blocks
Ta da! Ordinary house turned into quaint little village church. Love it!
