Sheesh.....

OK, hanging my head in shame....bad blogger, bad blogger.  Where did I go?  It must have been the hot weather we have had.  I have not felt like blogging about anything.  I have been working on a few things...but again...just jumping around from one thing to the next.  Annabelle, then  Sew Spooky, even a couple of chicken blocks for my Red Barn quilt (which has not seen the light of day for months)..My Tweets center block with the Japanese fabrics....even a tiny bit on the little shepherdess for the Quilt Me Club. 

No pictures of any of those projects (just yet).  I did start Block 2 for Fernhill.  I was starting to get upset with myself for a bit, since I could not find the pattern for Block 3.  I did not want to keep working on Fernhill until I found it! :(  F i n a l l y !   Of course, it was no where near where I thought I had put it.  :)  But inpsiration struck once again.  I decided to make all the patchwork portions necessary for all four blocks that we have been given, so far.  These included four small log cabin blocks.  The pattern suggested using a mix of blues and browns.  I had just recently purchased some gorgeous fabrics from Shabby Fabrics made by Lecien called Antique Flower (the brick set).  I decided to use these for the log cabin blocks, as well as some of the Japanese fabrics I already had.

(not exactly brick, are they?...but they are scrumptious!)
As I was constructing the blocks for the stitchery, I got to thinking about the layout for the quilt.  Think this is a possibility?
The empty blocks have the buttons on them for the stitchery blocks.  Now, to finish off those little bluebells for Block 2!

Your Fernhill is gorgeous. I love your fabrics. Are they Japanese?
