Shabby Fabrics Country Cottages

Progress has been made , I completed the Country Cottages top , after sifting through my own stash for borders I came to the conclusion I did not have anything on hand that would work for these blocks so I did what any girl would do I went shopping on Saturday :-)  I took a few blocks with me as I find that helpful in seeing what works best and I came home with an inner border fabric as well as a coordinating outer border fabric . I had already chosen the sashings from fabric on hand and when I sewed my new choice for the corner stones and inner border I really did not like what I seen so I had to go shopping again , only this time I was able to shop in my own stash and I came up with this combo .
So my borders are all officially sewn on and I love this little quilt , it is just a fun little quilt which I thoroughly enjoyed doing over the year . I am extra pleased to have it made into this flimsy and will get it quilted as soon as possible . Here is another angle of the quilt which may show  truer colors ,I did think about going outside to take a photo but changed my mind .This pattern was a free BOM from Shabby Fabrics  for 2012 .
The bitter cold has broken so it is more pleasant today and we had a little sun poke through now  and then . Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day doing something you love!
 hugs Sheila
