Daisy Cottage Blocks

20 comments
Have you seen Lori's new fabric? Since I've been able to see early peeks and bits from her line I've had several ideas for how to use Lori's new line called Daisy Cottage. It is funny how some of my ideas are exactly like Lori's, but I always want to do something that is my own so I came up with an idea to use the Riley Blake 5" stacker (double) in my own way. (apologies to Lori for my not true to color photos)
My squares are 5" unfinished and they are of 3 different window designs and 1 little house. This is the valance window.
This is the swag window.
This is the pullback curtain window.And this is the roller shade window.
This is the mini house block. The blocks went together so quickly. I made them all including applique in 1 day. Of course I need to make more of them since they are 4.5" finished but it is a fun sized block and making all the blocks is full of creative enjoyment. I have a few other ideas for other blocks. We'll see how it goes.

P.S. My friend and neighbor Laura is teaching cooking classes again. I'm taking her pie crust class on Friday. I can't wait. If you're interested, see Laura's blog for details.

Perfect use of Lori's fabrics! LOVE them! And I could really use a class on pie crusts. I am fine about making the fillings, but let someone else make the crusts.
