Summertime Streetscape Wall Quilt | additional design options

Yesterday, I finished the windows and doors and prepared the trees and bushes for the Summertime Streetscape Wall Quilt. Today, I put everything together to complete the quilt. I’m using UNIQUE applique pressing sheet, HeatnBond EZ-Print Feather Lite fusible web, the Oliso M2Pro Mini Project Iron as well as the handy pressing mat in the Hemline Gold Multi-Use Craft Bag.

Press HeatnBond EZ-Print Feather Lite fusible web on the back of the 6″ x 27″ grass fabric. Cut the fusible web sheets into 6″ strips to make a piece long enough to go across the grass fabric. You can cut a curvy edge at the top of the grass or leave it straight.

Carefully remove the fusible web paper backing from all the house, tree, bush, and grass shapes.

Peel off paper backing.

2. Using a design wall or similar surface, arrange your houses and bushes as desired on the quilted background. I like to pin all the pieces in place until I come up with an arrangement that I like.

Design elements are pinned in place.

3. When you’re satisfied with the placement of your pieces, press the houses and bushes in place on the quilted background. I used my Oliso M2Pro Mini Project Iron for this step as I found I had much better control in placing and fusing these small pieces in place.

4. Press the grass strip in place. Then place the tree shapes in place on the background.

5. Now your Summertime Streetscape is all ready for quilting!

All shapes are pressed in place.

After I finished my wall quilt, I realized that I still had several house and tree pieces left over, so I decided to make another small wall quilt.

Leftovers from the wall quilt

I used the same techniques that I used for the larger quilt to make the house, doors, windows etc. Again, I found that the Oliso M2Pro Mini Project Iron was perfect for pressing the small pieces together. It was also very convenient to use the pressing mat in the Hemline Gold Multi-Use Craft Bag.

Press the door shape on door frame fabric.

I tried several different layouts for the “leftovers”.

One possible arrangement for the “leftovers”

I finally came up with this arrangement and pinned it on my design wall. I just have to draw some lines on the windows and doors before pressing everything to the background fabric.

I hope you’ll enjoy using some of the many products I tried this week to create your own UNIQUE Summertime Streetscape Wall Quilt. The UNIQUE applique pressing sheet, HeatnBond EZ-Print Feather Lite fusible web, the Oliso M2Pro Mini Project Iron, the Hemline Gold Multi-Use Craft Bag, and Mary Ellen’s Best Press are all wonderful additions to your collection of supplies and notions.
