I was able to get some more Village houses done in between other projects. I hope that I am able to keep making these fun little houses here and there and will have a full village in time for Christmas.
My mother sent me some little fabric pieces she had too so I included some of those for some doors. I've been using fabrics from Sweetwater, Gingiber, Zenchic, Deb Strain, Natalia Bonner, Bonnie and Camille, my Thatched and Splendid, along with other pieces from my stash.
I'm so glad that Moda and Miss Rosie's Quilt Company made this pattern available to us during this time of staying at home. It is fun to sew these village blocks. You can view my previous post for more info on getting the pattern https://www.robinpickens.com/blog/the-village-in-christmas-cheer
Miss Rosies Quilt Co and MODA FABRICS and SUPPLIES have made The Village pattern available for FREE during this time. We all need good projects to keep our minds and hands busy and it really does take a village to make change in our world! So I'm sewing along too with my second Village quilt! This one is Christmas themed. I have charm packs of Circa, Thrive by Natalia Bonner, Merrily by Gingiber and my Splendid collection, along with some other Christmas Sweetwater and assorted other scrappy mixes of red and green fabrics. Bring on the holiday cheer! I'm going to be ready by this next December!
These are my first 27 blocks. I am having a great time just planning doors and roofs and walls. Join in and make your own village! Make sure to share with #modavillage if you are on instagram! Stay safe and sew on!
