I saw the cottage block swap on Nanette's blog http://www.fredashive.blogspot.com/. I was sorry I didn't sign up for it and thought I would just make one to try it out. The first one was so much fun I got out my halloween scraps and kept going. These blocks are addictive! I probably won't get it quilted in time for Halloween but I'm really happy with what I have so far. Thanks Nanette for the directions for this block - I may not be able to stop making them!
