More on the England Quilt

I have been making more progress on my England Quilt (the original that I am borrowing from can be found at
  http://fredashive.blogspot.com/2012/10/london-2012-finish.html )

Here is my first little row of houses.  I didn't even notice that I put all the doors on the same side.  How funny!
Here is my castle that I got from the following pattern...
I think I ordered this pattern from The Fat Quarter Shop
This is also the pattern that I got my crown from and I am planning on using the Queen's initials as well.  Not sure yet about the union jack.  I am having a hard time finding a good pattern for it in the size I need so I may have to use this one which is applique in the rectangular parts.  I would prefer a good paper pieced version. 
And here are my first two telephone boxes that I still need to do the embroidery on.  I think I like the one on the left a little better.  I still need to make two more of these and about 6 more houses. 
And here is the beginning of my "London Eye" Ferris wheel.  I am using my 10 degree wedge ruler for it. 

I am having such a good time with this quilt.  Tomorrow I will have to do some actual customer quilting!  But I am sure I will grab some more time to spend with this little project.

Happy Stitching!
