My quilting project which I have been designing and working on for awhile now. Other ideas that I have at this point are beehive, church, houses, etc. I'm wanting to make another 6, still gathering appropriate fabric which can take up some time.

I'm needing some input on various types of accomodations that are inhabitated by humans, animals, fictional and will be making appliqued squares for same, once I get that figured out.

I would appreciate any input. Thanks for looking.

Gorgeous! Love your houses! Fantastic detail to your block especially the barn block! I can't think of anything that I could say that would add to the beauty in your blocks! :thumbup:

They are gorgeous...so detailed...this is going to be one terrific quilt. How about a castle (maybe Rapunzel), a burrow, a hobbit house, a log cabin....ok I'll be quiet now! Can't wait to see more.

Your blocks make me smile. They're so delightful. Maybe you could make a bird cage, dog house, treehouse, and a camper. Can't wait to see more blocks.

What about a mouse door in the molding? A firehouse, teepee, log cabin, a child's playhouse....?

Well I was going to suggest a treehouse, how about a nest, teepee. Would a bear cave be to hard?

Cute idea, can't wait to see it finished.
