building tiny Shipshewana houses...

Aren't they just the cutest??!!
My messy process, above, 
is a little dab of glue on the paper to the first fabric piece, 
then the usual paper-piecing from there, using 
Judie Rothermel's trimming ruler for the little seam trimming.

I don't know if I'll do a house a day, as some are doing, 
but they sure are fun to fit in here or there during the week!

Many thanks to Hanne for the pattern
(Her pattern of her own design, is available at:
 Hanne's Quilt Corner -Tiny Shipshewana House),
and to May Britt (AbyQuilt) for helping me get going on this!

Along with Hanne and May Britt, there are many other gals from around the world that are making these tiny houses so that when we all return to Shipshewana, Indiana for the Dear Jane retreat in November of 2015, we'll share our quilts of our own little neighborhoods!


  1. It is so fun to build these tiny houses, and I will only use fabric from my scrap bag :)


Thank you so much for taking the time to visit!
