This week, we are working on Block 5.
Sew the top, middle, and bottom blue rectangles to the light window rectangles. Pin and sew on the long, blue rectangles to each side of the window strip. Pin and sew two, small blue rectangles to the top and bottom of the light, square window, then sew on light door rectangle. Sew all three units together and press.
Starting with your wall units, sew the top, middle, and bottom blue rectangles and squares to the light window squares as shown above.
Using your fabric pencil and ruler to make the roof unit, draw a diagonal line on both of the light, sky squares. Sew on the line, then trim 1/4″ away from the line. Next, press your Flying Geese unit open to create roof. Finish by adding the light rectangle for the sky.
For the your wall units, sew the top, middle, and bottom blue rectangles to the light window squares and the one long, light door rectangle as shown above. Pin and sew on long, blue rectangles and press to complete wall unit.
Edyta’s Tip: Quick and easy ways to customize your quilts without changing the pattern recipes are by making small changes! Try switching which side your chimney is positioned on a roof, or use your own colorful scraps to customize windows and doorways — get creative, have fun individualizing your village!
We only have 3 more blocks to go — can you believe it? With many of your houses built, how is everyone feeling? I love hearing about everyone’s quilting journey as we all quilt along together.
Happy Quilting! Edyta
