Little Houses Holiday Quilt Block

This is just a quick post before I get packed up to go to Cornbury Music Festival!
I wanted to show you this block I made for my holiday quilt. I made it whilst I was in France last month. 

I found the pattern in the book 'Two Hour Mini Quilt Projects'....the same book that I found the pattern for my Red Apple Mini Quilt.
It reminds me of a patchwork cushion I made a couple of years ago....using the 'House on the Hill' block.....

I didn't have any Bondaweb with me in France so I used a dab of PVA glue to secure the pieces.....

...before hand sewing them in place....

Ok so some of the houses are a little crooked! It was all part of my design......honest!! ;)
Originally I was planning on making a bigger completed block with nine little houses.....

But I did find the process a bit fiddly so I stopped at four!

I added the little buttons to complete the cuteness!

I then pieced the small blocks together on my machine when I got home :)

A nice little addition to my holiday quilt!
