Christmas Cottage Exchange



After thinking about it for a day or two, I decided to join the Christmas Cottage Block Exchange.

I only have to make 12 of these cute cottages and I made 6 of them tonight. I think it took me longer to decide on the fabric than it did to actually stitch them together. I have a large stack of 2.5 inch strips that I didn't use because I kept changing my mind. I tried to put something fun in each of the windows and may add some embellishments, like rick-rack, buttons, or ribbons.

Well they are JUST DARLING! I love them. How fun to see your work. It is a good Christmas stash project. Gets rid of small pieces and is fun. Love the blocks and I'm so so glad you joined us.
