Cottage in the Woods flimsy

I had an uninterrupted morning (except for laundry) in my sewing room today and look what was finished.  My collage in the woods top is all ready to be quilted. I really like how it turned out. 


And I dug through the stash to make a pieced backing for it. I found 3 yards of a tan, used up another 2/3 yard of the same green used in the border. And used another 1/3 yard of lighter green from the stash.  And made my binding from the same brown as the narrow inner border.  So it's ready to become a real quilt instead of just a flimsy. I'll figure out the total yardage used once it's all done. The green and brown borders came from 3 yards purchased this week.

  2. The cottage/house block is from the Farm Girl Vintage book. The tree blocks are from a pattern we received on our guild bus trip. I won 12 of the trees and then made 3 more to go with them.

  3. Excellent finish! I love the brown frame and green border with these blocks. The guild members are going to be delighted to see their trees in this quilt.

  4. We're doing a Farm Girl Friday, block of the month in my small online FB group. If you'd be interested in joining let me know. It's a bunch of my blogging friends, plus each of us has a few local friends in the group. Love how the quilt turned out and you were super productive to get the backing done too!
