It was a strange place to start, but I really wanted to use that Anna Maria Horner fabric in the chimneys.
(By the way, using painter’s tape over the alternate size when constructing blocks means I can get as distracted as I want and won’t accidentally cut pieces for the other sized block).
Then, I found a zebra.
And the next thing I knew, my zebra and her cottage were nestled in the low-volume woods of some Carolyn Friedlander fabric. My Cozy Cottage (on Safari in the Woods) is the 8″ version, and I’m dreaming up more adventure-based blocks to go with it for a quilt!
