My Quilted Village

I finally finished my Quilted Village over a month ago...and I want to share it with you. . My sister, Judy, quilted it for me and I think it is pretty awesome how she quilted it. She used 2 batts in it, a cotton medium weight and then put a wool batt on top of the cotton one. It is pretty stiff but that's just how I wanted it so it would hang nicely on the wall. I am going to enter it in our county fair next week and I am hoping it will win a ribbon for her machine quilting. I did this as a BOM from a quilt shop and used most of the fabric that they sent me. However, I always have to substitute a few that I don't care for.. I did invisible machine applique on all of the houses but hand embroidered the trees and birds.  I have been working on this for several years so it's a good feeling to have it done.  I hope you like it as much as I do. Sew until next time, have a "Stitches" kind of day..........

I love this quilt!!!
