Rainbow Challenge Houses

 

A wall hanging of houses in the rainbow challenge colors would look nice in my kitchen. I decided I wanted houses about 7"x7" with a chimney, a door, a couple windows and a flower bed. 
When I started cutting and sewing, I forgot that I would need some seam allowance on the sides. Also forgot I would also need some seam allowance in the roof. So the first pink house attempt will be a pot holder. No problem. I love pink. The flower beds may not be large enough for a seam at the bottom, but I can fix change that. 
Looking at them in this picture, I think they turned out cute. If I decide not to make my house blocks into a wall hanging, no problem. I'll make them into pot holders for gifts. Pot holders do make nice Christmas gifts :D

Sheila, they make nice gifts anytime, too!
Love the little houses... bummer about the seam allowances. This could just be your design change, couldn't it... Love that you included a flower garden.
Hugs!

What fun houses! They will be just the right size for lots of things if you don't end with a quilt. Love the little flower beds at the bottom -- so cute.

I love these little houses - especially the opportunity to use fabric to decorate or populate them!
