Country Fair

Recently, when updating some of  the lists in my side bar, I realised that this poor quilt was never the subject of a blog post. 

It is called Country Fair and I think it was finished mid-2012


 I purchased it as a kit from Sarah's Fig Tree Club.


It features the Butterscotch and Rose line of fabric and lots of Fig Tree cream.

 The lovely quilting was done by Leanne. You may know her as Lizzy the Quilter.


I especially love the red's in this quilt ... I think this is my favourite block.


With school rapidly approaching I've not done as much sewing this week. A couple of dresdens and a few more Trip Around the World blocks is about all I can boast. Hopefully over the weekend I may be more productive in the sewing room ... wish me luck!
