One of my favorite places to shop online for fabric is Shabby Fabrics...i love everything over there. They also have a wonderful blog and they are having a mystery quilt called Country Cottages its a free downloadable...every month will be a new block and i think they come out around the 5th of each month...you can find all the info here http://www.shabbyfabrics.blogspot.com/.
So I find lost of great patterns and projects online that i always save to my computer and then i forget about them and usually never get back to them...well this time i decided i am going to print each block when it comes out and get it done that month...so i printed January's block and decided this morning i was going to make it so i can have that one out of the way. I am also on a goal this year to try and use mostly stash or scraps....no promises that a visit to the quilt store wont happen but i am trying to pull from what i already have then when i use it up i can buy more.
So here is January's block with its cute little snowman...i have a little bit more embroidery to do and i also will have to add buttons on the snowman and the door but i cant add those till after its quilted.
i also finished up month 1 of my cotton quilt club ...these little blocks drove me batty but they are done...they measure 5.5 inches and oh so cute...i love the rich reds and browns.
