    Like the Cottage Colorway bc the colors stimulates a lighter mood feeling. The Desert colorway colors are just to dark or harsh for my tastes.

  • Linda Pratt

    Thanks Jacquelynne, I love the stuff you post to us all and mostly free stuff too. I live in UK so cannot take advantage of the great kits you put together. But I am learning so much. I have done several bits of your hand embroidery, but now I started a sampler quilt course here, I am looking forward to trying out your quilty stuff too.

    I have just looked through some of your categories list. How do you have the time? Do you 48 hours a day where you live? lol

    Love the cheery pattern! Hard choice because both colorways are terrific!

  • Loisjean

    I’m leaning towards the Cottage as I like pastel colors. When my granddaughter see them, she is likely to choose the desert one as she likes the blue around the blocks.

  • Marge Barlow
    Posted May 2, 2019 at 7:27 pm | Permalink

    I love both, but I think I would have to choose Desert.

    Hi. I don’t usually sign up for things on the Internet and want to make sure that there isn’t a cost. I missed the Bees because of this concern and dont want to miss these. They look wonderful

    • Posted May 5, 2019 at 1:58 pm | Permalink

      Hi Rosemarie – this BOM is completely FREE, just like Save the Bees. We only use your email address so that we can send you the patterns and our newsletter. There is no cost and we don’t take any payment information from you to send you the BOM, so there is no way we can charge anything to you.
