I needed another long term project to start on (as if the 10's of other projects weren't enough) and I liked the look of the latest BOM from Homespun magazine.

Entitled Foxley Village, it is made with Tilda fabrics, my very first experience with Tilda...yah, and combines hand-turn appliqué and piecing blocks

The blocks are much larger in real life than they look in the magazine, which is handy as my needle turn work is not really good yet.  

First block ticked off the finished list


Second block was a pieced block

Third block, getting harder...more appliqué 

This block Is almost 16" high and it's almost complete. Just need to finish the fox and hang out the Open sign.

I trying not to fall behind but I've got one block to catch up and my next two have just arrived....better get sewing

Dear Dawn,
what a really lovely BOM you started. And the fabrics look very, very nice. I love the block with the fox, what a cute idea.
Unfortunately I haven´t got the homespun so I cannot stitch and piece with you (beside that I also have a dozen ore more open projects :-((()

These blocks are beautiful. I wasn't sure that I was going to do this BOM (I still have the homespun hometown? Bom to start), however it really is so very pretty and I adore Tilda fabrics.

Lovely work Dawn. You will be an expert by the time you get to the last block. It's hard not to get behind isn't it? That always happens to me no matter how much I try not to. Hugs......
