Good morning!

This morning I will be posting  each of the first 6 blocks under its own thread.  As you complete a block, you can post it within the appropriate block's thread.  This should make it easier for everyone to find where to post their block since everyone works at a different speed.  

If you are a beginner, please don't feel pressured.  My role is to work each block prior to the scheduled month and to post what I found easy and/or challenging.  I'm a new appliquer too and will be very honest on my feedback for each block. We would like to hear your feedback  on each block too so we can learn from each other.

I hope this works for everyone.   If you have suggestions, please let me know.

Patricia Faye, that sounds good! It will be easier to keep up with what's going on with where we are. I'm almost finished with Country Cottage 1 but have started Block 2 as well as starting the Wildflower quilt. I am finding the creative process different from pattern to pattern so I enjoy switching gears. I don't make any sense but this will, I get board easy. At any case I'm loving it.

Erin, you just have to jump in!  I sat & looked at the patterns for a while before starting on the first one.  Once I got started I discovered I could do it & when I have a problem I pull out one of my "how to" applique books or watch an online tutorial for help.  Don't be afraid, BE FEARLESS!  You can do it!  I think I've become addicted.

Don't be afraid.   Applique is alot of fun once you bite the bullet and get started.   And these blocks really won't be too difficult.   You have lots of straight lines to get you started.   I know that you will do just fine once you relax and just get going.

erin, we are so lucky.   imagine applique with no electric lights, clunky scissors, coarse threads,  appliques from  old clothes, dull needles and pins, dull pencils and wood rulers, etc.  the women from the past turned out beautiful  applique without all the fancy gadgets and materials we have today.  you will do just fine.

Angele, did you check shabby fabrics?    She has stated on her web site that you may copy and send her patterns to friends, if she is given her proper credit for designing them.    That's the way I understood her statement.   If you want the patterns, pm me with your address and I will mail them to you.

I have the pdfs for the Country Cottage patterns, so if any one needs them I can email them to you if you send me a pm.
