  4. Hi Julie. I want to clarify, for those of us who bought the Cottage Quilt Kit, is there enough fabric in the kit to make either your version or the version on page 91 in the book? Can't wait to begin. Thank you.

    1. No, if you bought the original kit for the houses and trees there will not be enough background fabric for this quilt. The rest of the fabrics should be enough though.
