Welcome to My House! This is my stop on the latest fun blog hop being hosted by Carol of Just Let Me Quilt where every stop has a project with a house on it.

Welcome to My House blog hop

But it is a quilt that features the essence of a building, and every kid you know will wish they lived there ...
