Happy Villages by Karen Eckmeier
More villages and inspiration in this updated edition of Happy Villages! Let your imagination run wild as you explore the freedom of fabric collage. Combine step, window, and rooftop shapes to magically create a village. No seams to sew, no points to match. Fabric shapes are lightly glue-basted, then machine-stitched with a layer of tulle, which prevents the edges from fraying. International, whimsical, and fairytale villages are all possible with this fun technique.

Other than my own patterns, quilt labels, and other printable designs – many of the items in my shop link to Amazon. Those prices change (often for the better) and Amazon provides great detail and reviews for every item. I can search out and offer you the best of the best items in each category – without having to stock that item on my physical shelves. This saves you the time and energy of having to search out these items on your own.
Will I earn a small commission – should you decide to make a purchase? Maybe, I hope so. Does that change the price you pay for each item? Not in any way – you only pay the listed price for any item you choose to purchase.
Here’s the other benefit – Free Shipping is always available with an order of just $25.00 minimum for Amazon orders and delivery is normally very quick.
