Today I continue my quest in creating and posting one block a day of the fabulous That Town And Country Quilt by the lovely Susan Claire. This is day eleven of that project.

A quilt block with a dark blue background showing a building with a red angular roof. It has the word "builder" on a sign above the golden-brown door.

I want the builder who works here to build my house.  And I wouldn’t mind if it looked just like this! It’s such a cute little bungalow. 

I’m using Sakura Micron pens to do the lettering on my buildings.  40 years ago I worked as a sign painter.  This was before everything was designed by a computer.  Back then everything was drafted by hand with squares, circle guides, and rulers on heavy kraft paper.

We would look in a book of fonts and choose one to draft out.  So when this project came up I looked up fonts on the computer and plan to copy them on my storefronts.
