Little Patchwork Village ...

I first saw these lovely little village stitcheries on Peg's blog... and I knew it was one I would love to do....

Little Patchwork Village is a Wall Quilt designed by Rosalie Quinlan

all the blocks are done now .....


I have used a lovely Cosmos variegated thread... the changes are so subtle and it was very nice thread to work with.... 

The blocks sit in pretty stars - I think I will use this fabric... I will need a couple of other fabrics too  ...



Righto - Gotta Go.... weekend to enjoy


hope you have a good one

  1. It's a small world!! I bought that pattern a while ago - I love houses and building etc so I HAD to have it. I had it put away - somewhere and since I have relocated all my sewing stuff I havent really got to the job of sorting thru folders and labelling everything - one day! but I have been thibking lately - oh I should get out that little village pattern I have... then tonight I was searching for a pattern that I need for tomorrow - and there were my little village patterns - right next to the one I was originally looking for!! Then I logged on - and voila! same thing!!! If I could do that creepy music thing in words I would !
    Needless to say I love your stitcheries - which cosmo did you use??

  18. Your village blocks look great. Your stitching looks beautiful. I have that pattern somewhere too. By the comments there are a few of us who have neglected them in a cupboard somewhere! You may have inspired some to pull them out.
    Love those fabrics! I used them for my tts hanging so I am a bit partial.
    happy sewing!
