It's been a couple of busy days here at Sew'n Wild Oaks. I finished the last four blocks for Country Charmer. As I've been going around to look at other bloggers making this quilt, a consistent phrase that I see a lot is, "This is my favorite block." Well, this is my favorite block.
This ISN'T my favorite block! But mixed in with the rest, this cheddar cheese fabric seems to work. Cheddar and teal, who'd a thunk it?
This in one of my favorite blocks.
I like this one too.
I thought my rocking horse needed a little boost. I really like the blue check, but I didn't like the way it was all running together while he galloped around the block.
I used two stands of embroidery thread and stitched a little stem stitch around the leg and chin to separate them from the rest of the body. (I wish I could do an embroidery stitch around my chin to separate it from my body.....wink, wink!)
I've received several pictures of Country Charmer blocks from those in the Country Charmer Quilt Along that do not have blogs. I'll be posting them tomorrow for our monthly Country Charmer update. If you have any pictures that you would like posted, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. I'll also post them for you on the Flickr site that Lesley created for the group. It's going to be great fun to go around the world and see what everyone has been up to for the past month. Sew, until then........
P.S. I refuse to put a word verification on my blog, but several and I do mean many, many idiots have managed to sneak comments through Bloggers' spam screening. I try to eliminate the comments as quickly as I can and report them as spam. DO NOT under any circumstances click on any of the comments that direct you to any other website. You DO NOT need breast enhancements, get rich quick schemes, or pills for related male health issues. Geezz, these people are making me crazy and annoying the H-E-double-toothpicks out of me! I'll get off my soapbox now and return to the regularly scheduled program.
