Welcome to Barn Door Swap

Welcome one and all to my block swap.  I have decided to do this is swap as I purchased a pattern oh about 2 - 2 1/2 years ago and promised myself that I will make this quilt.  Well time has flied and I still have not even touched on the pattern let allow purchased the fabric for it.  So I thought that maybe someone out there like you are in the same vote as I am.  The pattern that I purchased has some Hole in the Barn Door and Shoofly blocks but I decided to do just the "Hole in the Barn Door" now known as Barn Door.

Well, if you are interested in join this swap here is what I need from you;

Would we just be making one block and receiving one block total or is it 1 block per month?
