Wonky House Swap Pattern!

I finally figured out my block for the Wonky House Swap.  Whoo hoo! Thanks to the ladies of the Wonky House Block Swap who put together galleries of different wonky house blocks, I took parts of different blocks that I liked and came up with this:

The block is foundation pieced, and since I drafted it on the computer, I can print the pattern on vellum, which makes the piecing much easier.  (See my post on why I print patterns on vellum).  Since the pattern was fairly simple, I decided to make windows with sashing:

This was my prototype block so there will be some changes for the next one.  The background will be lighter since this background doesn't contrast with the tree enough.  And I will probably add another tree.  Whatever changes I make will be minor because I'm loving this block!  Can't wait for Christmas break when I can work on it!
