Summertime Streetscape Wall Quilt | making the houses

Yesterday, I introduced you to some essential quilting products including HeatnBond EZ-Print Feather Lite sheets 8½” x 11″, the Oliso M2Pro Mini Project Iron, and the UNIQUE Clever Clips that I’ll be using this week to make the Summertime Streetscape Wall Quilt. The finished size will be 27” x 16”. Today I’ll show you how to make the bottom section of each house.

HeatnBond EZ-Print Feather Lite sheets 8½” x 11″

Let’s get started!

  1. From each of the 3 house fabrics and HeatnBond EZ-Print Feather Lite fusible web, cut 1 – 6″ x 8″ rectangle.

Fabrics and fusible web for the houses

  1. Following the instructions on the package, press the fusible web to the back of the fabrics. Be sure to use the UNIQUE applique pressing sheet to protect your ironing surface. You can use either the Oliso Pro TG1600 Pro Plus Smart Iron or the Oliso M2Pro Mini Project Iron, but I really preferred the mini iron when working with these small pieces of fabric.
  2. Stack the fabrics, one on top of the other. Use some small UNIQUE Clever Clips to hold the fabrics together.
  3. Make 2 diagonal cuts through all 3 fabrics as shown in the photo.

5. Re-arrange the pieces so you have 3 different fabrics in each rectangle.

6. Fold the HeatnBond EZ-Print Feather Lite fusible web,  back ¼” on each center piece. Don’t remove the backing paper from the fusible web.

7. Carefully press the 3 sections together.

8. Trim each rectangle so it measures 5″ x 7″. These will be the pieces for the 3 houses.

Trim to 5″ x 7″.

I hope you’ve enjoyed using these wonderful products:  HeatnBond EZ-Print Feather Lite sheets 8½” x 11″, the Oliso M2Pro Mini Project Iron, UNIQUE Clever Clips and the UNIQUE applique pressing sheet. I’ll use these same products again tomorrow as I add the windows, doors and roofs to the houses.
