A bit of fabric and a few new blocks

Hi everyone, I hope you are all well. Yesterday, my husband was going to pick up some items out of town and going through the town of Brockville, Ontario. So I googled the quilt shops in that town and decided to go look at what they had. So, after my husband was done his business, we stopped in to two shops, Taylor Sewing Centre and Picket Fence Fabrics. They were both very nice stores. I bought a few fabrics from each. It was a lot of fun. I bought fabrics that I could use to make a baby quilt with. I had already purchased some Beatric Potter fabric at Wilton Creek Fabrics in Harrowsmith. I had planned to use this fabric in my quilt. I worked on the blocks for the quilt this morning and this is what I ended up with. I will make four of these. Then do a really nice border. I haven't decided exactly how the border will turn out. But I want it to be really nice. Maybe with some appliques. This picture isn't the best. I think it looks great. I love the colors. I can't wait to see it all done.
Happy Stitching!

I think it's great for a baby quilt! That's a very cute Peter Rabbit print for the cabin centres.
Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such a nice comment. I sure enjoyed looking at your blog.
