The neighborhood has grown!

Remember my little blue houses? 
The last time I posted about the neighborhood, there were 38 houses. Now the neighborhood has grown to 48 houses!
I add a house or 2 when I'm between projects or only have a limited amount of time to play. This isn't a population boom but slow and steady growth. I'm planning on more houses! No deadline, no pressure!
I'm loving it!
Yesterday, I took some time to work on the Rainbow Scrap Challenge blocks and The Milky Way QAL. May's color is green so I pulled my green scraps bin (which is almost as full as my blue bin) and started putting together like greens. 
5 little spools of green! 
Here are all the spools together so far.
Cute! Aren't they?
I'm linking up to Scrap Happy Saturday over at So Scrappy and Oh Scrap over at Quilting is more fun than Housework.

For the Milky Way QAL, I'm using the same color (makes it easy), green. This month's star is called Vega. It is the 5th brightest star. 
Here are the first 5 stars together.
It is a bit of a mystery to me on how these will play together at the end. 
Time will tell. To learn more head over to Blossom Heart Quilts.


  1. I love all of your blocks but those colorful spoils are amazing! Thanks for linking up with Oh Scrap!

  2. Your neighborhood is looking good. LOVE those GREEN Spool blocks for the RSC!!

  3. Love, love love all those blue houses. They are so cute!! I am also doing spools for RSC. Yours are looking great. Have a great week

  4. Your little blue and white houses are wonderful! That is my favorite way to make a quilt - a few blocks at a time!

  5. Looks like you have a village already, so cute. The spools are always fun to see. The Vega star is my favorite so far, a fascinating group.

  6. Those star blocks are quite striking. The spools look great just like a thread display.

  7. Love those little houses! Think of it like controlled growth! :)

  8. I don't know which is cuter, your little houses or the spools! Way to go!!

  9. Love your house blocks. Steady growth takes both passion and commitment. Your spools are a darling too!!!

  10. I love your blue neighborhood! Before you know it you'll have a population explosion. Your growing spool colors are such fun. And the stars too.

  11. Your neighborhood is looking good. LOVE those GREEN Spool blocks for the RSC!!
