Half-pint, 2nd addition for the neighborhood

With February here,
we are experiencing snow accumulation almost every other day.
And the temps have been not quite so bone-chillingly below zero,
so all in all, 
if you love winter, it' been great so far.

Also, with February here,
the second installment (of 6) of the sew-along with
Cindy at Quilt Doodle Doodles
is available! 
And it's another cute block, for sure.

I'm making my sew-along project at half the size as the original
(I have problems following instructions, I guess),
so instead of 2 1/2 inch strips, I'm cutting mine at 1 1/4 inches.
Also, I am embellishing each block with some felted wool...
(The first row of snowmen have woolen noses,
and in this house block, the door will have a little woolen wreath that is not part of the pattern.)
I think it is just so cute!:
February, Quilt Doodle Doodles Sew Along
After I got all 74 little squares put together,
I think some of the fabrics are maybe a little too busy/print-y,
but I do like it.
And it's staying in the neighborhood. :)

Like all of you, I have many other quilt-y projects in the works,
and I can not believe I'm thinking this,
but I can hardly wait for
the next/March installment in this sew-along.
And, not because I'm wishing away our Winter,
but because I'm eagerly awaiting the next block for the neighborhood!

Happy Monday Stitching!
