More House Blocks

This week I finished two more blocks for my Quilted Village Quilt.

I am really enjoying choosing the bright colors and adding the embroidery.  I have 8 of the 12 blocks completed so I am hopeful that this will not end up on my UFO list at the end of the year!  


  1. I love the bright colors against the variety of B&W prints. Where did you find all of the wonderful black & white fabrics? You MUST finish this! I can't wait for months/years to see the final project... :o)

  2. Your embroidery really adds to the look of the village. I think you need to add an embroidered bird or bare tree or a little flower pot at the doorway, or ??? in the purple block. It's still naked compared to the other houses. This is really a cute pattern.

    PS You do know that I have a "house" quilt theme running around in my house too?? One of the very first quilts I did was from an online pattern with reverse applique of Amish colored houses. Since then, I've made 3 other projects that have some houses in them.

  3. What a great quilt you are making. I love these blocks.
