Patricia Faye:Here is my Block 2.
Pretty block Patricia.
Patricia Faye:The hardest part was the bumble bee & the lady bug,
I recognised the bumble bee but had no idea that was supposed to be a ladybug. I didn't even bother tracing it.
Janet Yamamoto:Block 2 Bluebird finished
Pretty block Janet.
Janet, nice pastel colors on your block. I love your background fabric. Great job on your bumble bee too!
Patricia Faye, Beautiful block, love the colors, the bee was a pain, I am getting material from a friend with lady bugs on it, so going to use it for the lady bug. Your lady bug looks great.
All the blocks to-date look great. Those of us who are behind have the advantage of playing off the early birds creativity! You go girls!!! Hahaha

Beautiful block, Janet!
I took the lazy way, my blocks will be machine applique. My kids seem to not bother me too much when I disappear into my sewing room, but just as soon as I sit with some hand sewing someone always needs something.
Jacy, you did a beautiful job on your block. Did you digitize it?
Oh so pretty Jacy!
Very nice jacy

Very Pretty, Love your color choice.
Pretty block Jacy.
Everyones blocks are so pretty. You are all doing a great job on these. I haven't even thought about starting yet....LOL
I am pretty new at this and as I prepared the fabrics to begin this block I realize there are the arrows for tucking under. On the Country Cottages there were extended seam lines shown by dotted lines. My question is should I leave extra in the seam allowances that tuck under other pieces? Or should I actually extend the pieces by the 1/4 inch? I think I might be able to work on it this weekend but don't want to do it in such a way that I have to take out and repiece.
