'tis done......


At the beginning of the year this is how my Patchwork Village looked.... I had the stitcheries done and the fabric for the blocks chosen.......


It's taken me a while but not I can say my little patchwork village is built


This is a Rosalie Quinlan design
lovely pattern

I used a variegated thread for the quilting which you can see I made quite big designs in the large empty spaces drawn on using a template and frixion pen 
(personally I'm not really happy with that part but I am still a learner quilter so I have to accept what I can do)
orange peel loops on the triangles
just a small wavy line around the stitcheries
(those I like)


then some waves and feathers on the borders
(I do like feathers and I think they look okay)




Dawn and Wendy host Sew It's Finished and the quilt is now a finished UFO
and so is the May stitchery - a little pattern is sent to us each month we finish a UFO


Not much of June left now...... enjoy the weekend

Righto, Gotto Go... I need to practice the FMQ.....

  6. I love how your quilt came out, beautiful stitching and fabric choices. Nothing ever looks as good in a photo as it does in person, I can imagine how stunning it is in real life.
