Sugar Shack

I don't think I've ever met a house quilt pattern that I didn't love and Martingale has created a whole book of them, I think it's just for me, because it's the Year of Thelma!


Luckily you can buy the book too.  I Love House Blocks has 14 different house patterns by a variety of designers.  The styles are a nice variety too, and whatever your taste in fabric you'll find a pattern that's a perfect match.


I plan to make several of the patterns but first up is Sugar Shack by Tonya Alexander of Eye Candy Quilts. 


I decided to break into my Carolyn Friedlander stash of fabric for this pattern.



This is Lifetime Quilt Number 206
The pattern is Sugar Shack by Tonya Alexander from the book I Love House Blocks by Martingale.
If finished at 60" x 64"
The fabric is Crosshatch by Carolyn Friedlander for Robert Kaufman
There are approximately 336 pieces.

I prepped all my Carolyn Friedlander fabric before I decided to use the Crosshatch prints, so while I have all that fabric out, and since it's ready to go, I think I'll make another quilt top using her fabric.
