My "Houses and Stars"-Collection consists on the one
hand of twelve patterns of houses or rather buildings each 14" x 14"

working a quilt from only a single block or maybe only four blocks if
you don't want to sew a big quilt. Some of the blocks are embroidered
with flowers, the instruction for the embroidery is included in the
pdf-files. But please let your imagination run wild, there are many more
ways to decorate your buildings. If you want to ease the patterns,
simply enlarge them on a photocopier (add new 1/4" seam allowances
afterwards) or for example leave away the window frames (example see

from them, too. Maybe you choose a complete other color combination -
for example traditional Christmas colors? Or stars only from batics, or
colorful stars with black and white backgrounds, or all in pink and
purple - or ... countless other possibilities.

Every pattern stays online for free for one month.
