    I think I will join in if that is okay. The last swap I did was the Funky Dog one and I loved it! I have been itching to paper piece but didn't know what to make. Problem solved!!!!! I'm not sure how many sets I will get done so I'll have to let you know as I finish each set. Off to find patterns, Robin

    Can there be a birdhouse in the garden? May I do one set (six) only ? I have paper pieced but have never done an exchange like this before. Read all the rules page and the very informative first post.....so would like to do this.

    I think birdhouses would be perfect in a garden! You may do as little as one set absolutely! I will put you name down and a big WELCOME!

    Alrighty ladies, today I'm gonna get started on this! I found my first block last night and I have all afternoon to work on it. I think it is a little topiary but I looked at so many I forget what I decided on! hehehe. I have to get the mulching done this morning then the rest of the day is mine!! I'll post a pic as soon as I am done with one.

    Craft, a topiary sounds super cute! Can't wait to see it.

    I have been working on some blocks. I just made a couple as I'm still in the "finding out what I want to do" phase. But here are the pictures. The snail is for the block swap and the ladybug is for the twist.

    I'm copying a post from page one that tells all!

    Welcome Anna! Of course Carol Doakes is one of the best known Paper Piecers...I own a book by Linda Causee called 100 Paper Pieced Quilt Blocks which includes a CD and the option to print out blocks from a 2" to an 8" size. There's a great section on garden blocks. I will likely use at least a couple of her designs. Maybe we can get a list going of possibilities, not to mention some of the free patterns on the internet. I'm working on a Carolina Lily right now and will post a picture when I get one block done. It's a bit time consuming.

    Thanks Ronda. DH just ordered a book for mother's day by the same person I think but under a different title. We'll see what is in it. We want variety anyways. I'll let you know if it has anything when it comes in.

    The snail and ladybug are adorable! I just received Linda Causee's book yesterday. Lots of intricate patterns. A person could really use up all of their scrap fabric, from little 3/8" on up. Pretty much wowwed me. Wonder what I should do?

    I know, right??? I drool over these patterns and then I see some and look for simpler. Although I've tackled a few...the snail was quite do-able and the ladybug was also, although in a 3 1/2" size more tricky than the larger block. Have fun deciding...
