Quilters Make Good Neighbors

 You may recognize this quilt as being made using the "Village" pattern by Miss Rosie's Quilt Company. It was a lot of fun to create each little house using five inch charms from my stash collection. 
My favorite houses have fussy cut windows or doors with fun surprises like bunnies, a mushroom, a flamingo or even a goldfish, to name a few.  I quilted it with meandering wavy lines and bound it with the same black/white dot used in most of the roofs.
The builder went on strike before the entire village of 132 houses were constructed, so my village is more of a hamlet, I guess, with 64 homes. As written, the quilt would have been quite a bit larger if I had kept going and made spaces between my buildings. 
This size perfectly fits the wall at the end of a hallway in my home. Each time I see it, I am reminded of the enjoyment of building the houses along side my sewing buddy, Vicki. I named it, Quilters Make Good Neighbors because, they really do!
