Over the last week I sewed down the binding on my Little Patchwork Village quilt. Looking back through my blog archives I discovered that the top was finished in January 2010!!
I remember seeing the quilt and buying the pattern at the Australasian Quilt Convention in Melbourne in March 2009.
I have always loved Rosalie Quinlan's designs and this is one of my favourites.
I always enjoy stitching her designs, particularly when they involve lots of redwork.
I was going to quilt it myself but last year decided to send it up to Sarah instead.
I didn't want the quilting to overwhelm the embroidered blocks so choose a large all-over stipple.
I choose the red check used in the centre block for the binding.
My current Rosalie Quinlan project is Scandinavian Rose. Hopefully it doesn't take me quite as long to finish.
