This week, we are working on Block 5.

To begin, gather all of your supplies: Winter Village pattern, fabric (we have kits!), rotary, ruler, fabric pencil, pins, scissors, and Aurifil thread 2310 and lets quilt together!


HOUSE 12

Start by cutting House 12. Follow the directions on page 18 of the Winter Village Pattern and lay out all your pieces for the twelve house.

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.

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 unit to create roof.

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
