    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.

    More WOW's!!
    That is so incredibly creative and original. I can't believe how much detail you have crammed into each block. And your fabric choices - amazing!

    I'm so looking forward to seeing the completed top.
    Fabulous work.

    I agree with the others on the teepee. I also love the detail you are putting into this - what a great use of creativity! Here's one - you could make a bordello and call it a Cathouse!!! LOL

    Copyright is in the works, just need to complete the top.

    Thanks to everyone for their input, there are some valuable suggestions on the quilt board today, now I can start to sketch out more blocks. Will post when I have completed the task at hand. Still looking for more valuable input, and once again thanking you all in advance.

    Someone already suggested a bears den but how about a wolf's den? I love this and mentioned it to DH and he suggested the wolf's den. He also suggested a house boat. and eagles nest. If DH (or me) think of anything else I'll let you know. This will be such a cool quilt!

    EDIT: Maybe this is going to far DH thought of Army barracks (he was in the Army.)
