    One lone very tall and narrow house finnished.It measures about 5 1/2 by 12 1/2 inches. I think I will make another unti with somethng esle and just sew that onto it and keep doing that till I have 60 inches, one row. I might then still add some applique so the seams and units do not stand out. I used a lot of muted Moda fabrics and whatever I had on hand.

    Right now I am busy ironing fabric that DH bought from another quilter and I washed. It is a little older but I overal like the quality and the patterns. Some of it will be great for the row blocks I am making for Village Square.

    My doggie had her weekly bath. The kids did most of their home work and the weekend is here. Life is good! Now if there are squishies in the mail today or tomorrow life is perfect. LOL

    Does anyone else get overwhelmed with all the possibilities, or is it just me? :-(

    Isn't that the fun of this is to encompass all the possibilities and then just create.

    I love that. Would be fun to add to. I have some wonderful homespuns that would keep the theme. So, you going to do some of those? At least we have a good idea of what we can do to add to the fun of your quilt.

    I would like to. My homes are different but I don't think that should matter. I think I will make one more home and then see.
    Kind of going by the seat of my pants but I am having fun. I hope to post a picture soon.

    Deb and Beth, I think it would be great if you added home and trees like that to my rows. I might not change my direction but I definitely think those cute houses and trees fit with it, buttons and all. I just want to be sure I am not to restrictive if I go that route. So I think I will stick with a slighly more general approach so other things can be included too like-

    My theme Country Village Square
    think- country colors, checks, stripes, small prints, calicoes, salt box homes, quilts on laundry lines, chickens, trees, pineapples, sheep, stars, hearts, patriotic, flag, baskets, vegetable gardens, sunflowers, traditional quilt blocks and crows.
    This has some ideas.

    And the home spun houses with button trees. Love the home spuns and buttons.

    It will also give Peggyzo and Babeyruth some insight also. This would be great to put on the note when your quilt goes traveling. Will be fun to see all the labels on our boxes when we keep using the same to send on.

    Also on packing our quilts, a friend of mine said she stuffs the quilt in the box in a bag, then she uses the vacuum to suck out the air and ties it shut and quickly seals the box. This way it is air tight, less chance of damage and you can fit a pretty big quilt in a little box. Anna, I am sure your DH will do a fine job packing up the quilts to be mailed. My friend said she ships to the Netherlands all the time for her customers and one time customs opened the box and POOF out popped the quilts and he could not get them back in. I bet that was so funny and he had to have been a bit embarrased not being able to pack it up again. The lady had to go to the customs office to pick it up because they could not close it.
