Le Challenge - Mix

This month's Le Challenge theme is "mix" and to be honest, I was quite stumped at what to make.  I finally decided that I would finish my scrappy happy houses quilt.

These houses are made of a mix of scraps.  I actually made so many houses that I have another quilt top completed and a stack left over to make a 3rd house quilt. 
Of course, just today on my work table I spied this mix tape.
It is the Quiltcon USB containing patterns from many of the instructors.  Had I spotted this sooner, I would have made a project from this tape to fit this month's "mix" theme.  (BTW, I cannot wait until Quiltcon 2015!)
Like I said, I was really stumped with the challenge theme this month.  I think it started early on when I was brainstorming "mix" ideas and thought of Meow Mix.  In my family, I remember us kids singing TV commercials around the house including one for Meow Mix.
