Another top … and a 1/2….done

Here’s a picture of the finished Cottage Crossing quilt top.  The cottage block is from Fig Tree Quilts’ Houses book.

January centreAnd the centre of “January” is done – it needs a few borders, two of which are pieced.  One is ready to go, the other is waiting for a final dark fabric that needs to be added to the mix.  The pieced blocks are from a quilt in Tea in the Garden by Cynthia Tomaszewski, and the outline embroidery blocks are the Whitework Sampler by Lydia Quigley at the Rabbit Factory.
