Village Top Finished

Saturday afternoon I spent a couple of hours at the sewing machine and attached the remaining rows to my Village quilt. Overall, I am quite pleased with how it turned out, and for a quilt that was nowhere near my radar at the beginning of April, I have a fun, cheery quilt to show for my efforts!

My version is slightly different from the pattern. It is designed to make use of Charm packs, and I did that, but I didn't have enough to do all 132 houses. My version has 100 houses - all Corey Yoder fabric lines -- Lulu Lane, Sundrops and Flower Mill. Even the yellow I used for my background is CY.

All the time I have worked on this quilt, I have thought these houses look like sherbet or fruit parfaits. Shall I call my quilt Sherbet Village? Parfait Village? It's a sunny neighborhood with that happy yellow background, so maybe it should be Sunshine Village Parfait? Parfait Sunshine? I don't know.
Whatever I decide, I know I am happy to have another quilt top in the finished column.

Happy Quilting, Friends!


  1. Wow! I just got my pattern and am anxious to start. I have some other things on my to-do list first. My first, is to get some semblance of order to my house. I know, I know, but mine is really bad due to some severe depression. I have to get it done, so since I have the itch to piece, I'm using that as a reason to get to trying to do some picking up around here and organizing a little. I had planned to use a scrappy looking background. Now I'm rethinking that. It's a great quilt.

  2. I love yellow and it is so nice to see it being used more. 25 years ago yellow was a dirty word to many quilters. What a beautiful, sun shiny quilt Jayne. It reminds me of rows of cabanas near a boardwalk. Wonderful!

  3. This quilt looks very nice. The yellow was perfect background. Lovely, lovely, lovely!
