Urban Village–A Free Quilt Pattern

I apologize in advance if you have received several notifcations from me today!–I was having some email glitches but I think all is well now!

I really enjoy working with the folks over at P&B Textiles.  I have worked with a number of their collections of fabric over the past year–while I enjoy working with all of them sometimes one comes along that really catches my eye.

Village Green by Carolyn Gavin is one such line:

I have purchased Carolyn’s fabrics in the past–I’ve used her seed pod fabrics from Wild Thyme in a number of different projects.

Seed Pods from Wild Thyme

Probably my fave project made using these little seed pods is my cathedral window pillow I made for my partner during a round of the Pillow Talk Swap over on flickr:

So, when the opportunity arose to work with Carolyn’s latest line of fabric, I was pumped.  And the fabrics are so cute–trees, birdies, houses…really cute.

I really like the trees print as well as the little ditsy floral print:

I knew right away I wanted to play off the fabric theme…and Urban Village was born.

This  quilt combines piecing and applique & the free pattern is available here.

I played around with the pattern a bit this morning in EQ7 to check it out in another fabric line.  And I think it’s very cute in Bonnie & Camille’s Happy Go Lucky line.

Hope you are having a fun productive Friday!  If you make an Urban Village quilt I’d love to see it!
