Happy Village

A couple of days ago I was having a bit of a tidying up in my sewing room when I came across the bag of fabric pieces that I'd cut for a Happy Village quilt I made a couple of years ago. The instructions in the book were wrong, and told you to cut ten squares of fabric instead of one, so you can imagine how much fabric bits I have left over.

The urge kicked in and I made another which I finished yesterday morning. I enjoy making them, and love the finished effect, but can't see me making another eight!

It's lovely. Such a bright and vibrant village, who wouldn't want to live there :)

Nice "urge" :0)
It looks like it's on an outside patio table? Great size for a table-topper or wall hanging.
Yay you :0)

I love it, really like the fabrics and colors. So you have enough cut to do 8 more? What would you do with 8 even if you did finish them? That's a lot!

Oh, you just show that around and you'll have people wanting you to teach them (and use your fabric) too. Yes, wasn't that a major mistake in that book. Mine had a paper-clipped correction so I didn't cut too much.

The colors and design are so gorgeous, but it looks like a ton of work! You are truly impressive, Amanda!
