100 block challenge squares # 19 & 20

So far today, a lot has been crossed off that list I made yesterday. Here are the next 2 100 block challenge squares. Instead of a snow house, I dug up some old landscape quilt fabrics I had from quite a few years ago, and made an English thatched cottage instead. The other square was named "Versailles" Just 4 more squares, and I can put together the first of the quilts made from them. The cottage square is fusible appliqued. I forgot to reverse the pattern when tracing it, so it came out reversed from the pattern, but it still looks fine, although, looking at the picture, the greens in the trees could have stood to have a bit more contrast. In the Versailles block, I didn't like the placement if the darks and lights, so I switched them a bit in the star points, so that they are in the same spot in each corner. I like the movement it has this way.

  1. You've been busy working on a lot of projects. I'm so behind in reading blogs I follow; still have about 100 posts as I haven't read all the posts in the last 2-3 days. Love your take on the blocks, especially defining the ground/sky on the house block. Take care.


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
