Cottage Garden Blocks

 I did not manage to get into my sewing room at all this week. I caught a cold and was busy with evening obligations, but I did manage to get eight Cottage Garden Blocks done and read a great book.
 I think wool felt appliqué is so easy and fun.
 This design is mostly wool felt appliqué with a couple of pieces of cotton thrown in like this black with white polka dots.
 These blocks are small and finish only 5 inches. I love the primitive look and country colors.
 I have sixteen blocks completed and two more to go.
 I plan on finishing up the last two blocks and getting it ready to hand quilt with perle cotton in the pieced blocks and border.
 This block reminds me of the giant sunflowers my hubby grew this summer.

I hope to get back in my sewing room this week!

  11. All those blocks are beautiful, but I really love the bluebird. That must be some very intricate stitching when the blocks are that small. I can't imagine how small those individual pieces.
