Still in the Village
I'm sure you are all getting tired of the endless pictures of my village but that is all I am working on right now. I have made lots more trees and tried the triangle border from Freddy and Gwen's book. It is easy to do and I quite like the look of it. I don't think I will be able to use the black and white polkadot fabric, much as I like it. It is quite flimsy and almost transparent. I will look for some real quilting fabric like that. Black and whites are a bit hard to find but I am sure if I look I will find something. I really like the dots but any bold geometric pattern will do. I think it will have to be quite strong to stand up to the colors of the village.
I am thinking that I will Quilt as You Go on this one. I want to do some interesting quilitng on the houses that would be very difficult on a whole quilt. Once I get the right black and white I will start quilting the center pannel.
I still haven't settled on what words I want to use. Any suggestions would be welcome.
It's still great quilting weather here. In other words freezing cold and windy. The sun is shining brightly though so we are feeling quite cheerful about it.
