Back in January of 2003, when we were living at the farm in Texas, I found an online BOM called "Wee Village." Anyone else familiar with it? Here's the premise: back in the deep woods, under the bushes and behind shadows, is a little village populated by wee people. Every month, a new block was published. And there was even a Yahoo Group for following the progress. It grew and grew, and "extra" blocks were created, until there were probably 20 or so blocks by the end of the year, plus an intricate border. ( I found a link from the original website here: http://www.future-heirlooms.com/wv_gallery/weehouse-index.html) Since were were packing up and moving during the year, I didn't keep up with the group, I just managed to print out many the patterns, stitched a few, and put the whole mess into a bag. That bag ended up in the deep dark recesses of my UFO closet. I pulled out the (mostly) completed blocks and stuck them on the design wall this week.
I'm no longer enamored of the Wee Village, but it will be a cute quilt when I've put it together. It won't be as complex as originally planned, and I won't make any more blocks, nor make the intricate border. But I'll try and get this baby done! Whoop Whoop!!
