Mini Dwell: No Covenant Neighborhood




I have a narrow spot on my kitchen wall that I wanted to make something cute and bright to fill this summer.  Several months ago I started this Mini Dwell, deciding to modify the dimensions to fit my space. (The original pattern is 3 rows of 3 houses.)

I got stuck in a bit of particularness as it seemed like all my fabrics were too large in scale and didn't work, and ended up making almost a dozen houses.    Below is my favorite block.


Only as I was putting on the sashing this week did I realize I used at least two different white solids on this project!  (And they are not close in color as you can tell!) Anyway, this is why my mini-dwell is a no covenant neighborhood...not so pretty, not following unwritten rules...but it is done.

If you hadn't said anything about the backgrounds, I wouldn't have noticed. It's darling!!!

It looks so cute and I would have never noticed the white differences until you mentioned it.

It is a design choice/feature to use the different whites. :D Cute houses and how you adapted them to your style.
