Little Pink House - Project Quilting Season 7 Challenge 5

The Challenge:  Through the Eyes of a Child

Kim at Persimon Dreams hosts Project Quilting.
She announces a challenge and you have one week (due by noon TODAY- central time) to create something quilty.
This is the fifth challenge of six for Season 7 of Project Quilting.

The Rules:

  1.  Your inspiration for this week's challenge is children's art.  Be sure to include a picture of the art that inspired you.
(Luckily we could use one of the examples from the challenge page)

I used Capri's (Kim's daughter's) art as my inspiration. 
  Isn't it cute? 
My first thought when I read the challenge was a house and stick people, Capri is a little more accomplished than that.

2.  Every challenge piece must be a FINISHED project seen through from INCEPTION to COMPLETION during the challenge timeline. Each piece must stand alone as DONE to count toward prizes. 

3.  Your project does not need to be a traditional quilt, but must meet at least one of these requirements:

Include patchwork
Include appliqué.
Have 3 layers stitched together by hand or machine.

4.  Please remember that these projects need to be created during the week of the challenge

5. Link up either a blog post or flickr image  by Sunday, March 6th, 2016, at noon, CDT 

While Capri chose a winter scene, I took the Spring route.  Snowmen go to snow as flowers go to bunnies.....  At least in my mind.

I decided to go the nontraditional route for this challenge and make a toy instead of a quilt.

The pattern I used (modified a little) is McCall's pattern 8346 from 1982.

I couldn't wait to put the Tula Pink fabric on the roof of this house. 
 I thought it looked like a tile roof.

The house is sandwiched with batting and plastic canvas.

Shall we knock on the door to see inside?  lol

The bunny isn't dressed, but he has invited us in...

I still have a bed to make and want to add a momma and baby bunny.

Here is the back of the house.
