Christmas Cottages!

I finally finished the last two cottages and took pictures. I'm sorry it took me so long. Everything just seems to get in the way of my FUN!! Anyway, I finally finished them and here they are. I hope you like them!

Here are my cottages all together.
I made 3 blocks of each for a total of 15 blocks.

This is one of my favorites!

I love the snowflakes on this roof!

I thought the black and white background on this block was really cute along with the peppermint candy house. It reminds me of the candy house in the fairytale "Hansel and Gretel."

I really love this fabric from Moda's "Candyland Christmas" line of fabric.

I look forward to putting my cottages together once the exchange is done. The blocks I've seen so far are just adorable and it'll be fun to see them all put together. Thanks, Nanette for putting this exchange together for all of us.

I love the cottages! Especially the fussy cut retro girls - I've eyed that material off many an hour! Can't wait to receive my blocks for the swap - what a quilt we will make :-)

Kim! I really love your cottages! I especially love the swirly green and red fabric. Do you know? is it new, available??? I'm on the hunt for some good C. Fabrics. Good job!

Super job Kim. I love them. It did strike me the other day that some of them look gingerbread like. That makes it fun to see all the personality that comes out.

I love the blocks!!!

Thanks everyone for your comments.

D Spack~ the swirly fabric is from moda's current line called "Candyland Christmas" it's more of a retro look. It has about 22 prints in the collection. I found the entire collection at Material Girls. Broadbents has most of it.

I'm going to make really cute Christmas Stockings out of it.
