Would you live here?

I've been playing in my happy village the past few days. It's starting to come to life! I was trying to use my original eleven fabrics for the roofs, but it was too much of the same. So I got out some scraps to use instead...I think it adds more color and depth. You could use all scraps for this quilt if you wanted to as the scale is small.

It's kind of hard to know when to stop adding things to make it look just right. The author says to walk around your  village and see where you need more. I also took pictures and looked at them. You see things in pictures you might not notice when looking directly at a project. The camo blue in the lower right corner sort of looks like water when I see it in the pictures. I got it because I thought it would add depth and movement to the quilt.

You can cut out around the actual print in the fabric to add form for your design.
I like it for my first attempt. It is ready to finish....I think. Would you live here?


Are you ready for the next Red, White and True QAL direction tomorrow? Cheryl at Cheryl's Teapots2Quilting is! She is making three twin size quilts...and she is all caught up! Check out her blog for some inspiration.

Wow, reminds me of a Mediterranean village. Very cute! This looks like it's fun to do.

I think it's terrific! Reminds me of San Rafael CA.

I really do like this and, yes, I would like to live there :)

Very nice! I have one of these quilts on my to-do list and hopefully someday, I will find the time to make one.
