This is the last in the three part series of block of the month classes that I took at Quilts Etc. I took this class with my daughter, Lindsay. Each month we received enough fabric to make four 6" quilt blocks. I wanted my quilt to be big, so every month I made 4 extra 6" blocks with fabric from my stash.
These country colors used to be my favorite for quilts until all the bright colors came on the market.
The houses were a lot of fun to make, and I enjoyed making the tree blocks and adding them here and there, not symmetrical.
Notice the sashing? Horizontally there are 1" squares, and vertically there is 1 l/2" navy blue sashing. Do you remember that I said I like dark sashing because it makes the blocks "pop"? I added the red border to accentuate the reds in the quilt.
I backed the quilt with a Thimbleberries print. Notice how beautiful the quilting is! I didn't have the opportunity to take another block of the month class at Quilts Etc. because I moved to another state. My daughter Rebecca took one of the classes a couple of years later, I would have loved to have shared that with her.
