    I'm looking for a pattern to make an Outhouse. For 2011 our quilt guild is going to do a House BOM. We can make any house we want, (house, birdhouse, etc.) Sorry but the first thing that popped into my mind was OUTHOUSE...so I'm on a quest. Any links, inputs, etc., would be greatly appreciated.

    Buy a piece of clipart from clipart.com. It is then royalty free and you can do whatever you want - which would be to make it into an applique. I do this a lot since I cannot draw. It is relativally cheap too!

    I did one a couple of years ago. I made the house a little more narrow than a regular house. Then appliqued a crescent moon above the door. I made mine small because I put it in the border of the quilt.

    When my DGS was potty training I got him a Christmas ornament that is a teddy bear in an outhouse! His nickname is 'little bear'.

    Your guild will love your outhouse block!

    You could even put a little chamber pot sitting on the ground outside by the outhouse door. You could make the moon dark, like it is cut out of the door and then have pair of eyes, just dots, looking out.

    Hey, this sounded like a f_rt. Are you sure you posted the right file? LOL
    BTW, you posted an avi (sound) file not a picture.

    If you go to google image you can find lots of pictures which you can
    convert to paper-piece.

    This one would be so cute with a moon on the door instead of the window!

    I remember a year or so ago seeing a quilt made up with just all different outhouses. It was really cute. Have no idea where I saw it.........wish I could.
