Description:

There have been quite a few Wonky House Block Swaps, and I thought it might be nice to have a "downtown" for our Wacky Town Quilts. This will be a continuous series for a few months, as long as there is interest. Each month will have a different town block:

  1. Town Hall
  2. Bank
  3. Post Office
  4. Hardware Store
  5. Pet Shop
  6. Supermarket/Grocery
  7. Garage/Gas Station
  8. School
  9. Library
  10. Gift Shop

Wonky House Tutorial

The example pic above is from https://media.rainpos.com/United_Notions/1101.00011.jpg a paper pieced pattern by Peggy Larsen
The block for the swap does not have to be paper pieced, but it can if you like.

Edited: Don't forget to include a few strips of some of the fabrics you used so your partner can use it to make the block fit in their project.

Oh wow, this looks like lots of fun, count me in!

I definitely want to participate in this if it takes off! I also looked into possibly buying the My Kinda Town paper pieced pattern...wowzer! It's expensive everywhere! But I just LOVE that quilt!

Can we make any building, or is there a specific building we are to make?

StichinGrammie 02/ 5/2018 #

What size do we make the block?

twobluecrows 02/ 6/2018 #

@StichinGrammie the block for this first swap is the Town Hall, and it can be any size suitable for a quilt, say between 9 and 15" square-ish.

Also, I edited the description above to add: don't forget to include in the package a few strips or scraps of the fabrics you used to help your partner adjust the block to fit her project!
