Welcome to month two of the Midsummer Sampler, Orchard Cottage.
As this is our December block I want to introduce you to the old English tradition of Wassailing.
This month I have introduced a new angle into our quilt, the triangle-in-a-square, which will give our cottage a steep, old-fashioned roof.
For this month's Folk Flower blocks I chose the cheery red and green prints, as well as our sky blue block background. But have fun mixing your scraps.
And, finally, as it's Christmas, Andrea and I have included a little treat for you this month: an exclusive Orchard Cottage enamel pin. So lets raise our glasses to a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!
