Little Patchwork Village

Jenni bought me a present - a sweet necklace.  John asked me if I knew what the middle charm was - oh, he's so funny.


The Stitching Girls came over last night - I made Peg's mixed fruit and walnut slice - delicious.  Thanks for the recipe Peg.  I'll definitely be making this one again.


The next block in our on-line BOM - Steps to the Altar.


Sunday afternoon and Monday evening were spent quilting Little Patchwork Village.




Here's the backing Bec.
I finished sewing down the binding and adding the label last night.  The label came about because I traced one stitchery twice and hadn't realised until about halfway through the second version (thanks Diann)


"Little Patchwork Village" is now hanging in my sewing room


where "Leanne's House" has been hanging for the past 4 years.


Think I'll have to visit Bunnings for some more Commander hooks and a piece of dowel so they can hang side by side.

LOL Tell your DH the thing in the middle is to iron seams flat for patchwork pieces ONLY.

Tehe - my husband can't understand why I love to sew, but hate mending! Just doesn't get it! Little Patchwork Village is lovely - it's a lot bigger than what I thought it would be - looks great.

Your 'Little Patchwork Village' is beautiful Lynda...luv the colours you've used...also a gorgeous fresh 'Steps to the Altar'. Bought some lemons to make Peg's slice, just have to make time .....& I think our hubby's deliberately say those things to get a bite...LOL!!

Love the quilt, turned out realy well. The fabric in your block looks stunning, matches up with the others beautifully.
Nice necklace, you are spoilt

Bec said...

The backing looks great Lynda! Thanks for showing it. LPV is just gorgeous, so pretty....makes me wish I was making mine in such pretty colours - mine is in 1800's reproductions and is much darker.
Will be lovely to change the wall quilt over for a time.

Thanks Lynda for sharing such a good designs with all. Your little patchwork village appears traditional and the patterns are really different from what we see usually. Great work, keep going…
