Extra Blocks??

Do you have blocks that you thought you would make a quilt from or just extras? Or maybe a block you would just like to feature.  I took these 3 blocks and framed them in a simple square frame and they now hang over the TV in the den.  Every now and then I change these out to something different.  The frames measure 10 1/2" inside so they are a good size for most blocks because you could border a smaller block if necessary. You could also set them vertically for that narrow space you don't know what to do with!!

Something Different

I decided one day that the space over the door looked a little bare! Of course there are quilty things throughout the house so why not over the door? This was a very easy project to accomplish with a little fusible and some raw edge applique. Now that I have the background dimensions I can easily do up a few more for the different seasons or to just compliment the general county decor. Since I have a covered porch I was thinking about doing a door topper for the front outside door.
