The beginning of a glorious new quilt!!!

I am giddy about this project  - I'm going to  take some ideas from Kajsa Wikman's awesome book "Scandinavian Stitches" and combine them with my lovely new matryoshka dolls, toadstools, and flowers, and then try out some new quilt blocks at the same time - oh, if only I had a lot more time!!! Anyway, this block is waiting for all the images to be sewn down, and then I'll add some embroidered details, like the much needed clothes line and pins, smoke from the chimney, bird beaks and legs, and of course the tummy worm for the two baby birds in the nest. And the door needs a knob, right? A little red button will come to the rescue.
