I purchased many of the kits of the blocks for this pattern on sale years ago at Pieceful Heart Fabrics, but substituted fabric from my stash. Started to paper-piece it. No way. I found the trees as clip art on the internet and stretched them to make them fit. It is machine quilted, appliqued and thread painted by me.
I am entering my Quilted Village quilt (57" x 60"). I purchased the patterns and the kits for some of the houses from Pieceful Heart Fabrics years ago. It had been a block of the month program. I originally started paper piecing the houses, but decided that was way too difficult, and ended up using raw edge applique which I loved; however, I forgot to doughnut the interfacing and now have very stiff houses. I did not like the primitive trees called for in the original pattern so I downloaded clip art trees online and stretched them taller in a graphics program called Inkscape. I embellished the trees with a new-to-me stitch I found on my old Bernina and used the blanket stitch all over the houses and trees. I used regular thread. I did not do the silk ribbon embroidery of birds that was in the original pattern.
