    I'm going to make a list of who is in it who wants only traditional let's stick to human houses. But funky and traditional. I also want to know if a person doesn't want embroidery. I'm going to post the people list on my blog but the other info will be on my personal iPad page for my eyes only.

    Tried to edit above post but was to late. Here's the results of your questions.

    I'm going to make a list of who is in it look on my blog the list is there.
    I will also keep track of those who want only traditional houses.

    But funky and traditional. Dog houses can be fine because I would love to include bird houses but lets limit the amount of how many dog houses so we get more human then dog or bird houses.

    I also want to know if a person doesn't want embroidery.

    I'm going to post the people list on my blog but the other info will be on my personal iPad page for my eyes only.

    So in my book of PP, I found a pattern for a quilt shoppe, will that count as a house of fabric? I would make those for this swap. I found about 10 other houses I can make. I know, I need to do my UFOs, but this book was just sitting on the floor waiting to be cleaned up and................ I will see if can get these done. I do have to use my scraps though if that is alright. I have two 55 gallon containers FULL!!! I cleaned up my garage again with all the bags in the house that were hiding and so have lots of scraps to use up. Love it though. n Let me know. I will put in my works of to dos by deadline.

    Quilter Momma, That sounds so cool. Could you share the name and the author of the paper piece book you have. Am interested in looking it up on line.

    A quilt shoppe sure sounds like an appropriate building to me.

    That would be awesome. I am going to use scraps too. It's perfect for this. Also some of the shapes just work so well. So can I sign you up?
    Lynnie how are you? I thought the henhouse went great. How have you been feeling?

    This swap will be for sets of 3 blocks. The limit is 4 sets per swapper, please.
    Just to make sure I'm reading correctly ...

    The maximum number we can send is 12 blocks (4 sets of 3)?

    Thanks!

    (Don't sign me up just yet. I've got a lot going on with my birds (in-home aviary), and haven't even given the blocks any thought as of yet. )
    Have a wonderful day! If you need to contact me, please use the e-mail address on my profile page. Sometimes I don't get notifications that I have a PM here. Please note that I'm usually unavailable on weekends, but I'll get back to you on Monday.

    Outhouses how does everyone feel? Maybe if you can post a picture. I think so far most people are leaning toward human houses and maybe just a couple of different
    As to amount as long as we have enough in the swap if you want to do 2 sets of 12 that would be fine.

    I am thinking about signing up for this. Here is a "funky" house block I was playing with this morning, using lots of scraps. It measures 6 1/2" x 12 1/2". But don't sign me up yet. I want to make sure I can fulfill the committment. Is my block acceptable if I decide to join?

    This is how it would look, but just doing "regular" funky houses would be no big deal.
