Quilt With Us

I had a rather productive day with hubby away on a business trip to Botswana and the boys having school holiday. I made good progress on my Swap#3 blocks and started with my "homework" on the Country Lane quilt. We have 5 blocks to finish in the next month. I did the applique on the 3 houses block...

This is only the "fabric work"... We are still going to add embroidery, small beads for the door knobs etc. The third house has flowerboxes that are going to be planted with small flowers. Then...

The 2 funny little brown shapes are mice. Their tails, ears, eyes etc must still be emroidered. The photo is a bit blurred (took it with my cell phone). Last but not least... my "Ohio Star"...

I learn so much at the class and I enjoy it a lot! When I look at some of the work on this site I realize that I still have a loooong way to go to be able to call myself a quilter, but already it is so satisfying for me to know that I can create something beautiful.

The rest of the homework is a block with a scarecrow, another Ohio star and a block with a washing line (we're going to make a miniature quilt for the line.)

Lanie, your blocks look great. Remember quilters are often their worst critics. When I look at some of the quilts on this site I think I have a long way to go. Then I try to remember that we all get there one project/quilt/stitch at a time.
I too look forward to seeing more of your Country Lane quilt.

The blocks are darling, I especially love the applique! Your work is very good - can't wait to see the rest of the blocks. I really enjoy hand embroidery, please show us the completed blocks?
