House blocks in two different sizes combine to make a fun and charming quilt. Small-print fabrics in slightly subdued colors make the houses pop against each other. The dark borders tie everything together and keep the quilt from being chaotic.

Brighter, larger scale prints will be fun too, but be mindful of values (light to dark) so that each house stands out from its neighbor. We can also see this in 1930’s reproduction prints for a nostalgic look.

 Mr. Knott's Neighborhood Quilt

A jelly roll or leftover 2 1/2″ strips are perfect for this quilt. You can also dig into your bag of scraps to add variety.

The finished quilt, by designer Dianedkquilts, is 68″ x 68″. Add more blocks to make it larger.

It would also be fun to use a few blocks to make a table topper or throw pillow.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
