Summertime Streetscape Wall Quilt | beauty is in the details

Yesterday, I made roofs, windows and doors for the Summertime Streetscape wall quilt, using HeatnBond EZ-Print Feather Lite fusible web, the Oliso M2Pro Mini Project Iron and the pressing mat on the Hemline Gold Multi-Use Craft Bag. Today, I add details and start putting everything together.

2 houses with roofs, doors, and windows added

  1. Remove the paper backing from the HeatnBond EZ-Print Feather Lite fusible web on the backs of the window and door frames.
  2. Arrange the shapes as desired on the houses.
  3. Use the Oliso M2Pro Mini Project Iron to press the shapes in place.

Press windows and doors in place.

  1. Using a permanent fabric marking tool, draw sashing lines on the windows and doors as desired.

  1. Complete the other 2 houses in the same way. Use your creative skills to design doors and windows in different shapes if you like. You can make the houses narrower or shorter if you wish, by trimming some fabric from the basic house shapes.

Trees and bushes

  1. Using the Summertime Streetscapes Wall Quilt pattern, trace the shapes for 2 trees, 2 bushes, and 2 tree trunks on the paper side of the HeatnBond EZ-Print Feather Lite fusible web. You can also print the shapes directly onto the fusible web using an inkjet printer.

2. Cut out each shape, leaving about ⅛” of paper all around each shape.

3. Press the shapes on the backs of your chosen fabrics.

4. Cut out each shape on the drawn lines.

Background

For this project, I quilted the background before I did the applique. I sprayed the fabric with Best Mary Ellen’s Best Press. This removes all the wrinkles from the fabric and gives it a little extra body. I used my full-size Oliso PRO TG1600 Pro Plus Smart Iron for this part. I also used this iron to press the backing, batting and background fabric together.

After the pieces were layered, I stitched straight lines ¼” to ⅝” apart, using my even feed (walking) foot. Now the background is ready for the applique shapes.

I hope you’ve enjoyed using  HeatnBond EZ-Print Feather Lite fusible web, the Oliso M2Pro Mini Project Iron and the pressing mat on the Hemline Gold Multi-Use Craft Bag to create all the elements for this wall quilt. Please join us again tomorrow on QUILTsocial as we complete our Summertime Streetscape wall quilt.
