My goal this week was to create a violet house block. I think this one came out OK! Most of the fabrics are from Kate Spain's Cuzco fabric line.
Here's my New Orleans house inspiration for this week. I snapped this with my cell phone camera last fall. DH and I were walking from our car to a favorite restaurant one evening when I noticed the houses in the neighborhood were painted in a variety of rainbow hues. I almost ran up and down the block snapping pictures before all the sunlight faded away!
The style of this house is known as Craftsman, or Bungalow. The style was popular from the early 1900s until about 1950. One finds this type of house in more "modern" New Orleans neighborhoods. I found yet another guide to New Orleans architecture online and if you browse through to page 14, you'll find a fantastic purple Craftsman-style house illustrated.
Some leader-ender spools got made, but that's about the extent of my sewing this week. I'm hopeful next week will be more productive - I have a baby quilt that needs to get finished!
I'm linking up with the rest of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilters over at Soscrappy' blog. Hope everyone has a sew-ful weekend!
