Hello everyone. Today is Minis and More day hosted by Sherri and Michele. This is my version of Village by Carrie Nelson of Miss Rosie’s Quilt Co called City to Country. Because the project was larger than a mini, we had two months to complete it.
I finished the top and started quilting it at the Spring Retreat at Cottontail Quilts, but was not sure how I wanted to quilt the open spaces. I’m going to stare at it a while until I know what I want to do with it.
I didn’t want to do the whole quilt. I knew I wouldn’t have time and I don’t do a lot of larger quilts. So I sat down and planned what I wanted to do.
Then I gathered leftover charm squares and squares that had been collected at shop hops.
Next to cut:
then to sew.
I only made 22 houses. It would have taken me a while to make them for the full size quilt because of picking fabrics. I’m trying to overcome being matchy and trying to be more scrappy, but it’s a work in progress.
Finally the layout:
Thanks for stopping by and have a great week.
