What’s happening in the ‘Village’ this month? Julie is powering on adding homesteads to her ‘Australiana’ theme. She has cleverly sewn a line across the lower edge of the panel, to show where the bottom of the appliqué is meant to sit, for later on where it joins the sashing strip.
Angela has decided to see how it goes by reducing the pattern to 75%, and try a ‘spooky’ theme. The ‘houses’ are going to be hand appliquéd using her own templates.
As for me, I’ve decided toy stick with the original background, add the trees on the horizon, and then have another think about the houses.
This is going to be a slow quilt to make. There are over 30 houses to appliqué, and if one house is completed each month – that makes it a three year project! So, let’s see how far I get between now and next month…..
