March 2014 EDIT:  Let's revive this QAL!  Post your interest and current update.  To keep you inspired, I will update the chart of the "widdle houses" on this page below showing the number of widdle house you've completed.  So c'mon, dig out this UFO and get let's get back to making these adorable Widdle Houses!!  OH...and newbies are welcome to join this QAL*!!!  Hugs, GloBug

I found this paper piecing probject and it's caught my attention.  This blogger has invited people from all over the world to join her in making one 3" block per day over 365 days plus the 366th block a bit larger for Leap Year (2012 is a leap year).  Each 3" block will be a little house made from scraps.  You decide how you would like to make your blocks and the timeframe in making them, it's all up to you!  Please post your progress and if possible, share a picture....we love seeing pictures at QATW!!!    

 Here's the background on the project and suggested 3" house template (from the blog site)

 

You can decide to make any size block house and the timeframe in completing them, it's your choice!  gg and Ilyeana have been wonderful in providing the QATW No Y-seam templates and Rotary Cutting instructions for houses in 4", 5" & 6" size. 

 QATW Templates = NO Y SEAMS:

*NOTE- When you print these pages, Make sure to change scaling from "Shrink to Printable Area" to "None" when the print window opens.

3 inch houses @ 4 per page

4 inch houses @ 3 per page

5 inch houses @ 2 per page

It looks like a lot of fun, but I don't know how to paper piece and something tells me this is not the piece to learn on.

I bookmarked it. I have a few goals this year, this could go under the stashbusting goal.

Yay!  It looks like there are a few of us interested in taking on this daily challenge throughout 2012! 

I have never paperpieced before and I made a sample block last night with brainpower and just thinking it through.  I think it turned out useable...lol.  These are tiny pieces and make adorable tiny blocks!  I'm going to search online for pp techniques to see if I can get some tips.  If any of you know of some good sources or want to share your techniques, please do....thanks!!

I, too, think this is so cute and plan to try and make one or two before Jan.1. (Is this cheating?)  I have a few questions: where is the EQ7 file?  I have opened all the links and have only gotten a picture in a pdf file.  How is everyone paper piecing this with it's "Y" seams?  I can draw one in EQ with extra seams to PP, but this one is in centimeters and the block in inches will be about 1/32" larger.

I will join you on this, but as a paperpiecing phobic, I am going to need a little direction.  How do you do a Y seam in paperpiecing?

I might make these - I'd like to do them in 6" PP blocks.  I like the sample quilt.  What a great scrap busting quilt!

Count me in.  I'd prefer to work with the 6" houses (either PP or RC). Those 3-inchers are intimidating to me, but would work for a dog house or two.  I'll start this sew-along once I finish 2 UFOs in 2012.

Yay!  More stashbusting!  Thank you GG, for re-working the house pattern.

Okay, yes I am doing this and I am going to do the 3" size. I am starting now. If for some reason I don't get any made before the first, I will let you know and change it to starting after 2 finishes. I believe I'll be doing the pp method, but will know better once I make a few.

Are we supposed to make one a day?  I'll never get that done!  If I can go slower, then sign me up.  I'm going to do the four inch size and will make at least one before Jan. 1, 2011.  Lynne

Oh no....I signed up for no new starts in December so I won't be able to do anything until I finish two UFO's.....BooHoo.....Maybe it won't take me too long to get there......sigh......

I will probably do the 4 inchers, but will need to start after the 1st of the year.  I need to finish one more UFO before starting anything new. I have a basket of tiny scraps for projects like this. THIS IS PERFECT!! Thanks

Hi Topsy and Melissa, thanks for joining this quilt-a-long! 

gg and Ilyeanna were kind enough to start a table on Post #1 on Page 1 of this thread and you'll see your names there and the size block you are going to work on.  This is an easy going quilt-a-long and the main idea is to make one block per day for all 366 days in 2012; with that said, everyone can work on these blocks at their own pace.  This is also a great way to use up those little pieces of scraps.

Please share pictures if you can....we love pictures at QATW!!

Don't forget to consider how many patterns can be printed on each sheet..   You can print TWO 5" houses on 1 sheet.. but only ONE 6" for a single sheet.  

I look forward to starting on my houses and reducing my scraps with each little 4" house I make in 2012.

I quilt, therefore I am a very happy camper. :)

I can't get any of the pattern pages to open on my computer   Would someone who is doing them in 4" paper-piecing be willing to mail me one page of them?


I used to have a handle on life, but it fell off.
