There was a crooked man and he walked a crooked mile,
He found a crooked sixpence upon a crooked stile.
He bought a crooked cat, which caught a crooked mouse.
And they all lived together in a little crooked house.
Several months ago I shared a project I had just completed. Actually, I just shared bits and pieces of it. It was always my intent to revisit this project and to share the pattern with everyone. So, over the next several weeks I will be sharing this pattern in several different ways.
I will include all 3 pattern blocks and directions for turning them into the banner you see her. But, each time I share one of the blocks, I will also give directions for a different way to use the block. The plan now is to make a pillow, a tote bag, and, hmmm… haven’t come up with a third use yet, but I will!
Originally, when I made these houses, I used a form of crazy quilting. I did not have a pattern and simply created 3 different strips for each block. If you’re familiar with crazy quilting, you might want to use that technique, although I will include actual pattern pieces for anyone who wants to make this in a more traditional manner.
So, watch for the directions. The first block will be available at the end of the week, and next week there will be directions on turning the block into a pillow.
