Just can't make one ! Country Charmer Quilt Blocks !

  Having SO much fun making these Country Charmer quilt blocks !  I thought I would make one and I just can not stop ;-)    3 blocks done & starting on block  #4.  The fabrics ... what can I say !   I bought this quilt that is the exact fabrics that Lynn made her first quilt with and I just love the polka dots , stripes , checks and floral .
  This pattern is just wonderful !  Easy directions and this layout template  that Lynn has included in the pattern is just a wonderful way to keep track of all the pieces .

Well back to making more blocks they are SO addictive !

Lynn is having a quilt along online if you would like to join here is the link :  Sew' Wild Oaks by Lynn Wilder
