Summertime Streetscape Wall Quilt | making roofs, windows, and doors!

Yesterday, I started to make the houses for the Summertime Streetscape Wall Quilt using the UNIQUE applique pressing sheet, HeatnBond EZ-Print Feather Lite fusible web, and the Oliso M2Pro Mini Project Iron. Today, I’m using those same products to add the roofs, windows, and doors.

2 houses with roofs, doors and windows added

Roofs

  1. Cut 3 pieces 3¼” x 6¼” from HeatnBond EZ-Print Feather Lite fusible web for the roofs.
  2. Center a piece of 3¼” x 6¼” fusible web on the wrong side of each 3½” x 6½” roof fabric and press.
  3. Trace the roof shape from the pattern page on template plastic and cut it out.
  4. Trace around the plastic roof template on the back of each roof fabric.
  5. Cut out the roof shape leaving ¼” all around the drawn lines.

6. Stack the 3 roof triangles together and hold them together with some small UNIQUE Clever Clips.

7. Make one diagonal cut on each roof shape as shown in the picture below.

8. Arrange the roof pieces so you have 2 different fabrics on each roof.

9. Fold back ¼” of the fusible web paper on the bottom section of the roof.

10. Press the 2 pieces of roof fabric together to complete the roof shape. The small Oliso M2Pro Mini Project Iron is perfect for working on these small pieces. Be sure to use the UNIQUE applique pressing sheet when using fusible web.

Windows

Here are the instructions for creating 6 windows and a door for one of the houses. Feel free to change the shapes of the windows and doors as desired.

  1. Press a 1″ x 10″ strip of HeatnBond EZ-Print Feather Lite fusible web on a 1¼” x 10½” strip of window fabric.
  2. Cut 6 – ¾” x 1½” rectangles for the windows.

Window frames

  1. Window Frames: Press a 1¼” x 13¾” strip of HeatnBond EZ-Print Feather Lite fusible web on a 1½” x 14″ strip of window frame fabric.
  2. Center the 6 window shapes on the window frame fabric. Remove paper backing from the fusible web on the window shapes and press them on the window frame fabric. Leave about ⅜” between each window fabric.

Press windows on window frame fabric.

3. Cut out the window/frame shapes so there is ⅛” of frame fabric showing on all sides.

Doors

  1. Cut a 1″ x 2¾” piece of door fabric.
  2. Center a piece of fusible web that is slightly smaller on the back and press in place.
  3. Trim so the door measures ¾” x 2½”.
  4. Cut a 1″ x 2¾” piece of door frame fabric.
  5. Cut a piece of fusible web that is slightly smaller than the door frame fabric. Center it on the back of the door frame fabric and press in place.
  6. Remove paper backing from the door shape and press it to the door frame shape.
  7. Trim the door frame shape so there is ⅛” showing around the sides and top of the door.

Completed windows and doors
