Christmas Cottages

I participated in a Christmas Cottage Swap with some other bloggers and received my blocks yesterday. They are just too cute!

I also sent out additional blocks to 9 members of our group to replace my original blocks. I misread the instructions and cut my roof 2.5 x 10.5 instead of 4.5 x 10.5. All the other pieces in the block are 2.5 inches by something else and I looked at those instructions so many times and didn't catch it. Here are my new blocks that went out in the mail.

I finished Cathy's bingo blocks quilt last night and she picked it up, and after she left I realized that I didn't get a picture of the entire quilt. Helpfully, she will bring it to guild next Wednesday.

Hi Ruthie,
I got my blocks the other day and I wanted to thank you for the block that I got. I see that you made more. I had cut a few wrong when I first started and had to redo a couple. We all make mistakes. Thanks for participating.

Hi, Ruthie! I got your blog you mailed to us today. You didn't have to do that, and you didn't have to apoligize. I did the same thing on a few of mine when I first started making them and I had to redo them. Like Carrie said, everyone makes mistakes.

Thanks! It's beautiful!

Hey Ruthie,
Just wanted to let you know that I got my block today. Thank you for making another one. You have not held me up putting mine together because I am still thinking.
Thanks again, Carrie P. said...

Hi Ruthie, I got your block, thank you it is adorable (I thought the first one was just fine) Glad I was in your group, Hugs, Mary
