Country Homecoming #2

We have 2 bloggers who have decided to join us on our journey to complete this quilt in a year.    Paulette Sweet P and  Mary Quilt Hollow are now part of the “group”.  It’s not too late to join us.  The blocks are super easy to make and you can whip up 3 of them in no time  and be all caught up when we post pictures next month.   (Easy for me to say, huh?  LOL)

So, here we go.

And here are both of mine together.

It’s amazing how much you can get done when there is peer pressure involved! 

If you missed the first post about this darling BOM, you can read about it here.   And again, jump in anytime and join us in the fun!

Hugs, Anne

Oh these are so wonderful! I really wish I had time to join in as I just love this quilt, but I just can't do it right now.

I will enjoy watching you all put yours together!

I already have a big plaid house neighborhood from a different pattern. I just realized why I like this pattern better. The houses are divided by the dark sashing and mine were not. Maybe I should take my top apart and add sashings and I would like it better.

Oh so pretty!!! I need windows and doors....mine is so plain and boring...and I'm behind!!

Karen said...

FUN FUN FUN - love them all.

The houses are just adorable. I may have to rearrange my schedule and hop on the house parade!

I would so love to make this quilt but the book is a little pricey on Amazon. From $43 to $126. I like the quilt, but not that much :-(

Yes siree, Easy for you to say!! Love them Anne! Ok off to work I go, I'm trying to keep up with everything but both your BOM's are so tempting. :)

Sandy said...

Yikes, I just paid an outrageous price on Amazon--$44. I should have read the comments first! Once the book arrives, I am in!

Candace said...

A neighborhood anyone would be proud to live in! Hope all is well in your neck of the woods, Anne!
Cheers!

They are all so interesting, it's amazing how different colour choices make them so different.

Kim said...

These are beautiful! I saw the book for $144.00 new or 44.00 used on Amazon :0)! Wow!
good news though my library has it and I have it on order. I'd love to jump in when I get it.
Are you using wool for trims?

I love plaids that don't match up it makes it looks primitive to me.

Happy Sewing

Kim said...

Making progress slowly: I bought the book. Does that count?! LOL! I'll let you know if I get any further along and "officially" join in.

Dorothy said...

I already have the book so I think I am in -- will start my blocks next week!

Robin said...

Do you pre-shrink your homespuns? I have a whole drawer full and don't know exactly how to start.

Hello!!! I just wanted to let everyone know that you can still get the book on Amazon but its not cheap. You can also check the quilt shops. Some of them have a copy or two available. Thats where I found my copy.
