Stringybark Farm is finished.

Hello,

I have finally put the finishing touches to a Block of the Month that has been hanging around my sewing room.


This Block of the Month started way back in 2009.

I needed to complete this block of the Farmers.

I added this block of my own. I found the image on the net. Unfortunately this Block of the Month seems to be in limbo.

I found this farm scene material in my stash which was perfect for the backing. Another finish for the month of February. I realised when I finished this I didn't even have it on my "to do list". A bonus.

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend and remember the following.
Live well, laugh often and love much.

Hi Bev,
Another great quilt and just love the embroidered squares, charming. Thanks for your lovely comment. The photo was taken by my Hubby using his film camera and I still think film gets you the best shots. Have a wonderful weekend and what are your planning to work on next. It seems you are filled with ideas. Happy sewing. : )
