2016 Finish-A-Long Number 8, 2nd Quarter

It’s time for another Finish-A-Long. I have one more to go for this quarter. You can find my FAL list here.

This is my version of Village by Miss Rosie’s Quilt Co, From City to Country. This quilt is for March’s and April’s Minis and More Parade hosted by Sherri and Michele.

My idea was to start with row houses in the city, travel to the suburbs, then meander into the country.  You’ve seen bits and pieces of the quilt along the way, but I finally finished quilting it a few weeks ago.

The original pattern was bigger than I wanted to make, so I made fewer houses. It’s about 35″ by 55″.  The background fabric is Kona Bone and the houses are leftover charm squares. It’s pieced and quilted with Aurifil Thread 50/2, # 2000. I used Quilter’s Dream Select batting.

The city row houses were quilted with straight lines and have street lights. Then we have a road separating the city and suburbs.

The suburb houses are all spaced out nice and even. The houses are a little softer looking with quilted wavy lines and different roof styles. They also have driveways and trees in the yards. A few even have flowers and bushes in front of the trees.

We finally make our way out to the country. We have some rolling hills, some forest areas, and farmland. That’s supposed to be a stream, but several people thought it was a path, so it can be either. It does have river rocks in it though.

Here’s a peak at the back. I used the Westalee ruler foot and templates on my Pfaff QE 4.0 domestic machine to quilt the straight lines in the houses and street. For the curved lines, I used the QPC #12 Template. This was a lot of fun to quilt. I had a general idea of what I wanted to quilt, but once I got started, it just started to flow.

I have June’s Minis and More to finish for this quarter. I’m still quilting it and two days left, I’ll be busy. Thanks for stopping by.
