Pixie Summer Home QAL House 2

Hi Everyone!
Welcome to the second post in the Pixie Summer Home Quilt Along


Are you ready to get started on your next house style? If you haven't started on the first houses yet and you downloaded the pattern on the first day. There was a small error in the cutting directions so you should re-download it here. My diagram was right but one of the cut sizes added a 1/2 inch in the written directions. Don't forget to add your link to the linky party at the end of the post to be entered in our big drawing. Visit Brooke and Sally today to see their progress on their quilts as well. We are so excited to see what you all are working on :)

On to the next set of directions...

Here is a link you can download the PDF for printing


Pixie Summer Home Quilt Along

The Big House on the Block




Cutting:
Background Fabric:
2 - 2 ½” by 4” Rectangles

Roof Fabric:
1 – 3 ½” by 9 ½” Rectangle
1 – 1 ½” by 9 ½” Rectangle

House Fabric:
2 – 1 ½” by 3 ½” Rectangles
2 – 1 ½” by 3” Rectangles
1 – 2 ½” by 3 ½” rectangle
2 – 2 ½” by 4 ¼” Rectangles

Door and Window Fabric
2 – 2 ½” by 3” Rectangles
1 – 2 by 2 ½” Rectangle

**All seams are ¼ inch unless otherwise specified.

Assembly:
1. On the top of the roof fabric make a mark 1" from each edge. Line up the edge of one background piece and the bottom corner of the roof fabric with RST. It should hang over the top and the bottom. Just make sure it is about ¼” over the top and leave the largest portion hanging over the bottom.
2. Sew 1/4" seam along the edge of the background fabric. Repeat steps one and two in the opposite side.

You will have this when you are done:

3. Using your roof rectangle as a guide straighten the top and bottom edges.

4. Square up to 9 1/2" by 3 1/2" leaving at least 1/4" of background past the bottom edge of the roof. (this might come out to be a little bigger than 1/4" depending on the accuracy of your 1/4" seam)

  
Now that the hard part is out of the way (I know it wasn’t that hard) … 

5. Sew the two 1 ½” by 3” rectangles of house fabric to the top of the 2 ½” by 3” rectangles of Door/Window fabric.
 



6. Sew the top floor of the house together in this order:
1 ½” by 3 ½” rectangle of house fabric – Window unit – 2 ½” by 3 ½” rectangle of house fabric – Window unit - 1 ½” by 3 ½” rectangle of house fabric


7. Sew the bottom floor together in this order:
2 ½” by 4 ¼” rectangle of house fabric – 2” by 2 ½” rectangle of Door/Window Fabric - 2 ½” by 4 ¼” rectangle of house fabric


8. Sew the rows together in this order: Roof unit, Second Floor unit, 1 ½” by 9 ½” rectangle of roof fabric, Bottom Floor unit.






And you’re done!

  2. Love these blocks and looking forward to the 3rd block. I think this quilt would make a perfect housewarming present with fabrics based on the interests of the recipients. A have a couple in mind already!
