    Your collection is just the bee's knees. Didn't know there were so many different patterns "out there." Especially like the rustic houses! :D

    Yay, my computer is working now! It wouldn't stand still when I clicked on "quote reply" so couldn't get your quote to come up for at least 5 tries! Yes, the rustic houses I think are the best ones! There's lots of ways to make these houses and there are lots of patterns out there too! love the cardboard sewn to the edges of the mini! So cute!

    :D :D

    Thank you so much for sharing your collection! That was so much fun to see. I may bookmark this one. :thumbup: I made my first house block in January for the Quilting Bee One Block Swap and loved it! I almost didn't want to send it to my swap partner. LOL. I also saw a book last week that was all house quilts. I briefly thought of having a house collection. After seeing all of your houses, I definitely want to start my own collection. Are you doing the Funky Neighborhood swap? You should check it out if you haven't yet . . . .

    Hi: Enjoyed all of your Favorite House Blocks. Could you please share the pattern for the group of Four Houses. This is the group just above the picture of the Lighthouse Block. This would be neat for a hot pad. Maybe an 8" block. Using homespun fabric.
    Thanks
