Month in the country BOM

You know that thing when you are ridiculously proud of something and want to show it off?? Yep that!! I am so so in love with this block. I wanted to do Jo Averys block of the month, A month in the country, from today's quilter. I found the perfect fabric, it was quite sad, fair trade fabric was going out of business and had a sale. I bought loads of it, as it's perfect for this project!

The tree fabric I got in a scrap bundle, it was tricky using directional fabric for HSTs but I managed. 
I just adore this!
Here is my variation barn block.

The very first blocks were maple leaves, great for bursts of colour.

The flying geese were surprisingly challenging, but Jo likes to keep us on our toes! Certainly ups your skill level!

Talking of skill levels I should perhaps remember to read the instructions thoroughly!! Ahem ... The template for this should have been enlarged by 200% 😂😂 honestly if I had a brain I would be dangerous!!

I decided just to leave it, as a Jo says it's now part of the story! 
I'm loving this BOM , am now fully caught up, patiently waiting for next Installment.
