Border and Sashing     Here is the paper pieced pattern I used for the  inner border and sashing.  I used a plain outer border.  I've also included a photo of the finished quilt.

 11/4/19    Winter Birdhouse    
         Our last birdhouse is our second pattern this week.  It takes a little more time but putting snow on the roof will really dress up the block.  I appliquéd mine from cotton fabric.  It will go faster and easier if you use ultra suede.

 11/18/19    It's a Start    
       Our last winter block sees us making snowmen.  Thank goodness our snow here in Iowa has finally melted away.  I am so ready for spring.

11/25/19   Swirling Thread    
       It's only fitting that our last block be quilting related.  I hope you have enjoyed this free BOM as much as I have enjoyed designing and making it. I would love to see how you use these blocks.  Won't you share them with me on Facebook at Apple Blossom Quilts Group.  I'll visit with you there.

 9/30/19    Dance of the Carrots    
              When I first designed this block I had intended that it represent "summer".  Now that it is done, I'm inclined to think it would be just as wonderful in a little quilt with the rabbit blocks.

 10/7/19    Acorns and Oak Leaves    
         There is a lesson to be learned with this block.  Karen's leaves and acorns are a lot more colorful than mine.  That means they are a lot more interesting than mine are.  Lesson learned.

 10/14/19    Fabric Etc.    
             I probably shouldn't say this because I don't want to discourage you from trying.  This is the most difficult block that I have ever designed.  I have prepared a little tutorial on how I stitched it.  Just take it one step at a time.  It is very doable.

 10/21/19    My Sewing Machine    
           I have created 4 quilt related blocks for this quilt.  "Fabric, Etc." (above) is one of them.  Quilting wouldn't be complete without including a sewing machine.  This block is much easier than the last.
