Elizabeth’s Village

My blogging friend Elizabeth (OP Quilt) has designed a number of nice patterns and I recently found myself “forced” to make one because it is so cute.  Here is one of her samples.

She has given instructions for multiple variations in the pattern.  (I love all of them.)

Naturally, I didn’t quite follow the pattern.  I had some cute fabric left from another project so used it for the town square in the center.

When I was finished, I wanted to make the quilt large enough to be used as a donation quilt (crib size), so I ordered some wilderness fabric to surround the town.

And here’s the finished quilt:

  1. How fun for you to make Elizabeth’s pattern! She is one talented lady, and I admire her for taking her classes to Zoom, so everyone can enjoy her ideas. Having met her (we were in a bee together for years) at QuiltCon on two occasions, I can vouch for her being a sweet lady too.

  2. Hi Mary. Love your quilt! Thinking about you after the quake and hope you and your family are ok.
    Best wishes,
    Mary Potts

  3. Finally coming up for air after an onslaught of being too-busy and the place I come up is this fun post about your making the houses! I do love your version (I think I mentioned that before) and love how you made it work for you. Thank you for the shout-out!
