House and Trees Wall Hanging

Use house and tree blocks to create a homey wall hanging. Choose stripe fabrics for some of the architectural elements to make it appear as if there are bricks in the chimney and siding on the house. Fabrics are from the Millie's Garden collection by Joined at the Hip for Clothworks.
