First for 2017

So here's my first finish for 2017, but the vast majority of the work for this quilt took place in 2016, the entire year.

These are my 2016 project scrap houses, with some holiday houses and just because I like the fabric houses.

I sort of arranged my Village into districts, and like a calendar.  Valentine's Day houses in row 2,  St Patrick's Day house in row 3, April Showers and Easter houses in row 4, May floral houses in row 5, day sail houses in row 6, 4th of July houses in row 7, summer houses in row 8, Halloween houses in row 9, fall houses in row 10, and an entire row of Christmas houses for row 11.

This is Lifetime Quilt Number 193
The pattern is Village by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co
It finished at 70" X 77".
I has approximately 1.034 pieces.
I've named it Village - A Year in the Life 2016

This was so fun I'm thinking of doing it again this year, except maybe going with spools or basket blocks instead of house blocks.

I am so behind on piecing the backs of my quilts that I've instituted a new rule, no new projects started until the backing and the binding for the last project is done.  Plus it wouldn't hurt me to have a backing Monday, for the next 3 months, I'm 13 behind!  So nothing new until I sew the backing for Village, which I haven't even given any thought to, hopefully I have something on hand to use so I'm not waiting around for a delivery from the mailman.
