Time for a new challenge

Last year I challenged my fellow guild members to make a quilt, any size quilt, using only solid color fabric.  Those quilts are due at our meeting on Thursday.  At our board meeting last week, we decided to issue another challenge for everyone.  We had a couple of ideas and settled on what we're calling a Mag. Challenge.  I decided I'd do an "example" over the weekend.

For house #1, above, I ran out of the bird print and had to improvise, and one of the windows is too low!

For house #2, I really think the black and white print is too bold.

I love house #3, with the bad hombre's peeking out of the windows.

Here are all three houses together.  Below is the original photo, taken from the NYTimes Magazine of 5/7/17.

I concentrated on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th houses.  I'm very self-critical, but I think it's OK.  I don't have any plans for this example, and it may end up on a quilt back.

May your bobbins always be full,
