My own little global village.
This is one of my unfinished quilts. (I know, I need to get these things finished up.) Please pardon the wrinkles. I just pulled it out of a drawer. Three of the four main blocks in this quilt were from a block exchange.
Each of the little buildings/houses is unique.
I pieced the Kansas pioneer sod house. Each block of sod is a little rectangle of fabric. And the door opens.
My sister made the church. She was inspired by a beautiful Colonial church in Brazil, where she lived at the time. I love the palm tree and the leafy vegetation. It looks so real.
My Australian friend made the farmhouse with the front porch and flower garden. It is the house she grew up in. (This one was not part of that block swap, but was given to me at a different time.)
And the pink house with the yellow roof was made by another American participant in the swap.
I thought all the little houses should be gathered together, peacefully, in one village. And this is the result.
