    I might make it all 4 seasons.....
    Like 3 blocks per row but that would be kinda long and narrow...LOL :D

    Qbee, if your blocks are set straight at 12" finished, without sashing 3 by 4 layout would be 36 by 48, you can always add extra pieced blocks and borders to certain sides or all to make it the size you want it. I think all seasons would be fun. :thumbup:

    I am personally leaving my blocks as is, when I have enough I'll start playing with layout designs but I think mine will be allover with no rhyme or reason, lol.

    Thanks Karen! Of course I don't mind. That is what sharing on the Board is all about. I used a pattern from Carol Doak's Foundation Factory software, but I had also found two on the web with PDF downloads at http://www.thequiltedsnail.com/ppieced.html.

    Have fun! I am going to find another house to make!

    I love it! I am so glad that you chose a pp pattern! I wasn't sure that was o.k. but I wanted to also. I am new and I feel more comfortable with lines to follow! :oops: :)

    Of course it's OK.....anything is OK in the BOM since you aren't swapping with anyone else.....do them however YOU like them for your project. The only "rule" is to have FUN!! :D

We get so much inspiration from each other!!! :thumbup: Now I'll have to dig through my stash to see what I can find. If I don't have anything, gee, I guess I'll just have to buy some!! :lol:

    Mine is done. This is such a cute block and simple too! I haven't sewn around the applique because I don't feel like changing my thread (some excuse!)

    Your Spring Birdhouse turned out darling too!! :thumbup: Your quilt is going to be so nice. I love your idea of the other blocks that you are putting in your quilt. I am thinking of doing something very similar. Nice work.
