Scrappy neighborhood

Finishing this quilt top was such a delight.  Even piecing the borders was a fun addition.  I really love how this Scrappy neighborhood turned out.

There is a little guy peeking from this window!

The pattern is in  McCalls Quilting October 2009
The original pattern is larger, but mine turned out to be about a twin size.  

woo-hoo, Welcome to the Neighborhood!  Happy Quilting!

This is so wonderful! I am looking to create a Farm block on a quilt for my husband and this has inspired some of my options.
