I actually thought I would loosely attach a button to each one for the eye and then if someone wanted to change it they could later. Does that sound okay to everyone?!?

I love buttons! and I love the goose! I think either the marker or the button is just fine with me. If someone wants more embellishment, they can add after they receive.

I think a button is perfect for the eye. Love the block.

I'm pretty sure the sets for this swap are 12...BRT...would it be better if 76 makes either 24 or 36?

Hey fellow farm swapers, here is one of the label blocks I'd mentioned making. For my own quilt, the blank square will say "Welcome to Friendly Farms". I was considering doing a set of these as my 3rd set for the swap.

The prints in the blocks are cows and pigs.

What do you think? Are they farmish enough? Majority rules. If it seems like most folks like them, I'll make them.
