Sew Hometown — Cottage Block

As we start the New Year we wanted to share step-by-step how to make the Cottage block!

The Cottage block is fairly straight-forward once all the pieces are cut. Do use a smaller ruler for cutting the small pieces. When working with a lot of small pieces I suggest a quick double check of your seam allowance before beginning to sew.

The Cottage block is so fun to customize with fabric. Make your blocks with a variety of fabrics, and think about the hill too! You might want to use grey or tan to represent mountains, instead of a grassy hill.

The opportunities to make your blocks unique are many! We would love to see too – be sure to tag us on social media with @inspiringstitches and #inspiringstitches or #sewhometown

  1. I just finished your 2019 Hometown Quilt. Such a cute quilt. I’m retired so have plenty of time to quilt. It was such a cute quilt to make. It’s cold here in Indiana right now so staying in and quilting is a good thing. Now to find a new project. LOL
