    Here's a cool blog that does scrap houses. Just hit translate. She also gives away patterns and has some great people she follows.

    This sounds like fun. I plan to join in also.
    Ok, I have a silly question. I make 3 blocks to send in. The blocks can be any size multiple of 3 with the seam allowances. Does each group of three blocks I send have to be the same size? Or do you mean I can mix sizes with the three blocks? Do dog houses also count into this? thanks.
    To make lots of quilts, is to have lots of scraps, and I do, and I do.

    They don't need to be the same size the only thing is your only allowed 3 3 1/2 x 3 1/2. Dog houses would work as long as everyone agrees.
    so everyone what do you think?

    Personally I'm not wild about the dog houses. But if others want them then don't worry about it. Some people may not want bird houses or some other type, so I guess I would be fine with anything.

    OK so how about we limit how many each one makes of a kind like doghouses or birdhouses and if someone absolutely don't want a certain houses them pm me I will make a note to be sure they don't get it.

    Her is a house I made and ones I got from Abonda and Lynnie one is a hen house but its really cool. Mine is the traditional one.

    I need to see if I can get the blocks done in time before I sign up. Do not want to pressure myself anymore than I am already. i have to finish some UFOs before I sign up But will do my best. This sounds like fun.

    If is same to you, I would prefer to keep all human type houses.

    It also occurred to me to ask are these going to be funky or more practical?
