Little Patchwork Village topped!!

When I say I have "topped" this quilt, I don't mean that I have done better than it .. I mean that I have made the quilt top. I finished cutting the rest of the blocks out last Tuesday at Mum's place - I took Amanda over to see Mum and the computerised longarm in action!!
I had 3 blocks already made, then I pieced the rest in no time!! My DH was playing pool so there was nothing to go home to... (especially with my central heating out of order - the control panel has nothing on the display)... so I stayed at work for a few more hours and finished piecing the quilt top too.
Here it is!!


Want to see some of the blocks?


I used a green variegated thread.



I love the fabrics I chose - the original quilt was red and pink, I think I've had enough of those for now....
Now, this quilt has to go back to Mum's place for quilting!!! LOL!!

How lovely! The stitchery is just darling!

That is lovely! What a great idea to use the stitchery as the center of pieced stars!

Am a little late checking blogs - but I've got this pattern and just recently bought some luscious reds and whites for my stars and a green and white dot for my borders, and a green/red/white diagonal stripe for my binding - going to stitch the houses in green too! It'll look a bit pepperminty I suspect.
