Donna and I both took a class from Karen Eckmeier on making her “Happy Villages” wall hanging. You saw Donna’s adorable village in her August 23 post.
I saw an example of one of Karen’s village that was done in all red/white/black fabrics. Well, my favorite color is turquoise so I decided that I’d do a turquoise/white/grey/black little village.
Doesn’t look like much but then I added doors and windows. It was starting to take shape but I felt like it really needed another pop of color so I decided to add some lime green.
Black tulle was used to cover the village and then I free motion quilted it with black thread (trying to give it that sketched look).
I trimmed it on point and added some lime green piping and black triangles. I finished it off with a pop of color on the binding.
It’s a very different village from Donna’s Italian village, but I think it is kinda sweet.
Finished size is 15″ x 15″ and another UFO is now complete!
