Two More . . .

. . . of the 12 Country Cottages squares are now quilted.  First, there's blustery November with its swirling leaves:


And then there's June . . . .


Here in California, the weather in June usually isn't all that breezy, but since the block design included a kite, I imagined there must be a pretty good wind in the countryside of Jennifer Bosworth's Country Cottage design.

I used a pencil to lightly draw the swirls in the November sky so I could get fairly uniform coverage with loops in all the open spaces, but I was able to make June's breezy air without marking it first.  Now, I wonder what months will be next?

if i ever make MY country cottages, i am gonna copy your quilting because 1) i am a copycat and b) your quilting is making those sweet blocks pieces of art and thirdly) maybe i can talk you into just doing it for me since i am a lame, lame, lame quilter and you are so NOT lame AND you have had all of this practice...

what a beautiful job you've done with your quilt.

Is it possible for you to provide a link for the pattern? I'd love to do this quilt.

Thank you.

Gorgeous, Kim. When you lightly draw the lines with a pencil, do you erase them afterward? What kind of pencil do you use?
I learn so much from you...
Thanks!
