Did you notice what is going on in blogland?

I don't know if you noticed that a lot of bloggers are building houses.  You can see this house in their sidebar:

A Dutch woman is organizing a quilt-a-long, called 'building houses from scraps'. The participants   make each day of 2012 one tiny house , so at the end of the year they'll have a quilt with 365 houses.
Here you can find the blog, and here are some more houses, and here.

Inge made some houses with her grandsons, they had a lot of fun.

Her sister Erna is fond of animals, this are her houses.

I did not want to participate, but downloaded the pattern, because 'you never know'..... When i saw on all the blogs all those cute tiny houses, (they are only 3 inch square,) I realized that i also have alot of scraps, so why not make one or two.

But i can tell you, when you start to make them, you cannot stop, it's really addictive.
For the moment I have twelve houses , that  should be a nice doll quilt. I 'll show you the houses tomorrow, it's too dark now to make pictures. Here are my first pieces, I piece by hand in the English paper piecing way.
