Winter Village Quilt Along – Block 2

Updated: Jun 23

Sew thankful that you are quilting along with me!

This event is FUN for everyone! You can join at any point along the way and feel free to bring friends!

Each week, we are going to create a section of the Winter Village quilt. We will call each section a “Block”. Block 2, which we’re doing this week, has two houses.

Please make sure you visit our YouTube channel for more tips and tricks.

To begin, gather all of your supplies: Winter Village pattern, fabric (we have kits!), rotaryruler

fabric pencilpinsscissors, and Aurifil thread 2310 and lets quilt together!


HOUSE 4

We will begin by cutting House 4. Follow the directions on page 7 of the Winter Village Pattern and lay out all your pieces for your fourth house.

Position the light square, with your roof rectangle right sides together. Mark diagonal line and stitch following this line.

Trim and press, pushing seam allowance towards dark.

Next, position the second light background square, right sides together, with roof unit. Draw a diagonal line and sew along the line. Trim to the right, a 1/4″ away from it.

Press open, this time pushing seam allowance towards the light. Your roof unit should be 4″ x 7-1/2″, unfinished size.

Next, we will assemble our house by sewing top and bottom blue squares to the light windows rectangles. Pin and sew rectangles together to complete.

Add rectangles in between window rows.

Edyta’s Tip: To perfectly match my rows, I lightly crease the fabric first by folding to indicate where my windows begin.

Match the crease with the window and pin.

Sew and press.

Sew all units together and finish House 4 by adding the side sashing.


HOUSE 5

We will now cut House 5. Follow the directions on page 8 of the Winter Village Pattern and lay out all of your pieces for the fifth house, that is made from 3 Units.

Position your light square with your roof rectangle, right sides together. Mark diagonal line and stitch following this line.

Trim and press, pushing seam allowance towards dark.

Next, position the light background square, right sides together, with roof unit. Draw a diagonal line and sew along the line. Trim to the right, a 1/4″ away from it.

Press open, this time pushing seam allowance towards the light. Your roof unit should be 2-1/2″ x 4-1/2″, unfinished size.

Next, we will assemble our house by sewing the top and bottom blue rectangles to the light window square and light rectangle door. Pin and sew the blue side rectangles to complete the house.


Edyta’s Tip: Be aware of your fabric pattern! Start by first laying out your fabric pieces and pay attention to the direction of your print.

Sew all 3 house units together and add the sky.

Congratulations! You have just built your fifth house!
