"Village" is a Miss Rosie's Quilt Co design (Carrie Nelson) and the pattern was released by Moda as a freebie for a sew-a-long during quarantine.  I already had the pattern but hadn't made the quilt, so I joined in (a bit late).

This is such a great pattern to use up loads and loads of fabric pieces and none of them have to co-ordinate.  I cut out pieces for the roofs, background, walls, doors and lintels and just pieced the blocks with whatever fabric was top of the pile, except if that fabric was already in the house.  Some unusual combinations and some very happy combinations.

I finished stitching down the binding on Sunday afternoon while Mum and I were watching BBC Proms on Broadway.

I asked Jenny (AngelCake Quilting) to use whatever quilting design she fancied and this "Think Spring" design is perfect.

The backing also has a spring feel and I used scrappy binding.

I have a second "Village" quilt with Jenny - that quilt will be going to Keepsafe Quilts, along with a couple of other quilts, when it's finished.
