I'm all caught up on my Country Cottages BOM...in fact, I started the July block on the day it came out! I had joined a few months late so it's nice to be on the right month. Feels weird to applique shamrocks in May! Anyway, here's the June block:
Kim had given me the idea to make a block for the kite and trim it to size (it doesn't say to do that in the instructions). That worked out great. You should check out Kim's progress on this quilt...her blocks are just gorgeous!
When taking these pictures, I realized I forgot to do the last step...the embroidered curly design above the door. So I guess I'm not really done. But that shouldn't take long. And of course all buttons and doodads will be added at the end.
Camille's store awhile ago...and when I saw the previews for Marmalade, I knew that was the fabric I wanted to use. Only problem, it's not being released until October. Luckily, I found a seller on ebay who already had some jelly rolls so I bought one. Cheaper than retail too! Now I can get started sooner rather than later. P.S. It's even prettier in person!
Fat Quarter Shop order on the way, which should be arriving tomorrow or Tuesday. I'll be sure to show you some more fabric goodness in my next post!
Take care, friends!
