I think these cute little wall hangings were part of a series but I only ever managed to find these two patterns, “The Covered Bridge” and “The Olde Village”. They were one of my first attempts at pictorial quilting, and for once I followed the instructions. The designer recommended back basting as the technique of choice, and I faithfully did it this way but decided afterwards it was not for me. But I love the finished wall hangings and especially how the border appliqué reaches into the main picture.
