Fabulous Fabric Friday And More Cottage Blocks

23 comments
I'm very glad blogger is cooperating today. There is just 1 week before Halloween so it is time to send off your Christmas Cottage Blocks, if you haven't already. Just a little reminder. .

Yesterday I received more blocks in the mail! TLC Stitches blocks are above - thanks Trisha. They are fabulous. Look at the snow she appliqued on the roof and chimney. How cute is that! I love the personal touches on each person's blocks. I can only imagine how great they will be when the quilts are put together. Trisha is multi talented and I'm so glad she joined our exchange. She sent the sweetest knitted washcloth, too. Thank you Trisha!

You will probably already recognize Eileen's blocks above. Eileen is not in my group but she and I are good friends and she sent me a few blocks to use as extras (just in case!) and 2 for me!! They are so sweet. The vintage fabric is so darling. Thank you so much for your support Eileen!
I hope she knows how much I appreciate her.

I admired her little chickadee fabric that she sewed into some of her cottage exchange blocks so she sent me a fat quarter and she also sent me the vintage blue and white fabric piece above. Of course I love them both. When I make my kitchen quilt next year I'll find a special place in the quilt for it.It is Friday and we are talking fabric. I've included pictures 2 colorways of a great children's novelty (kitchen) fabric that is a reproduction. This fabric combines all my favorite qualities in fabric.

The pink has a suggestion of valentines. It shows children helping around the house and kitchen.

If only real life were like this! Isn't she so sweet.

This is perfect fussy cut fabric or for a border.

It kind of reminds me of Campbell's kid images. I think I like the blue colorway best. That is opposite of what I usually like. But both colors are really cute. I'm pretty sure they carry this fabric now at Superbuzzy.

Lucky ladies who get those houses! LOL
So sweet and I too love the personal touches that your swappers have been adding.
Love that repro kitchen fabric too! I will have to look for it when I am in Houston next week...I have to be careful in my spending but this would be so cute fussy cut for a kitchen quilt project!

Each time you show another set of cottages, I think they can't get any more adorable. They're all so wonderful.
I prefer the blue colourway of that fabric too.

This post reminded me that I wanted to tell you when I dropped off the blocks that there are 3 extra cottages, two for you and one for the quilt your making for the Tree of Lights fundraiser.

I'm so excited to get my blocks! I love the "snow" that was sewn on - wish I'd thought of that! I've been planning what to do with them - while I work on my halloween cottages! Thanks again for doing this exchange! The Other Nanette

Oh I do love that snow appliqu├ęd on Trisha's blocks. I wish she were in my group!
Those children doing house chores is too adorable. You're right.. they do look like campbell's kids! Thanks for letting us know where to find it.
Your cottages have been such a huge hit. :-)

The snow on the cottage is such a nice accent. I love it. The fabric with the little kids on it is so sweet too.

Karen Dianne Lee said...

These cottages are very cute. I keep seeing them but keep not commenting because, why? Because I don't make cottages.

No good for Tea & Bee time and unfit for public! HEE!

Silly Love, *karendianne. who just really wanted to let you know I keep droppin' by and keep not leaving a comment! But now I did.

More cottages! The snow on the roof and chimney is a wonderful addition, isn't it? Eileen's cottages are too cute! I love the fabrics she used. That fabric with the children is totally sweet! I can't wait to see how you decide to use it.
