Country Cottages.....

again!  Back when this BOM first started, I was feeling pretty ambitious.  I thought I would reduce the size of each block to 6", so that my finished quilt would not be so large.  Well....by March, reality set in, and I decided to go ahead with the designed dimensions.  I had done January's and February's block as six inches.  I kept up with all the other blocks at the regular size....which meant I had two blocks to redo.  Finally, here are the January and February blocks in the 12 1/2" by 12 1/2" size.
January:



A few details for this block:
I wasn't too happy with the snowman's hat and redid it a little, as well as the face and a portion of the scarf.  No giant snowflakes in the sky, either.  I did those in the six inch size and did not think they added that much to the block.

Here's February:
This one has become one of my favorites.  A few of the details for this one:

I'd like to take a moment to thank everyone for stopping by to visit.  I especially enjoy reading the various comments left by those taking a few minutes out of their day to do so. :))
