Just in time for the parade, my finished "Full House" which I have named "Christmas in the City".
My project finished at 41" x 42" and has approximately 423 pieces.
The fabric is Countdown to Christmas by Sweetwater.
The pattern is Full House by Carrie Nelson for Miss Rosie's Quilt Co.
This is Lifetime Quilt #79 and my second finish for 2012.
My first two projects of the year have a total of approximately 1.422 pieces.
I got a few requests for my town house pattern, here it is:
The roof is a 2 1/2" x 4 1/2" - For the roof cut a 5 1/2" square diagonally twice use one piece- for the sky cut a 3 1/4" square diagonally once, use both pieces. Trim to correct size.
Door - red in picture - cut one 2" x 2 3/4" piece
Windows - green in picture - cut five 1 1/2" x 1 3/4" piece
Siding - black dot print in picture - cut three 1 1/2" x 4 1/2" pieces, one 3" x 1 1/2" piece, three 1 1/2" x 1 3/4" pieces, and five 1" x 1 3/4" pieces.
Once all the pieces are correctly sewn together you get a town house that is 4 1/2" wide x 10 1/4" long.
Someone left a comment saying that my town houses reminded them of Meg Ryan's town house in the movie "You've Got Mail", one of my all time favorite movies. I bet I've watched that movie nearly 50 times. No wonder I thought I needed some town houses!
Additional Note on Sweetwater's "The Neighborhood" pattern - I just received the pattern in the mail, those cute little cottages are appliqued! I thought they were pieced. I'm not in the mood for an applique project now but am thinking maybe I can convert the applique patterns into pieced patterns, stay tuned for further updates!
Melinda at Melinda Quilts has made the pattern and said the applique wasn't that hard, she machine applied her cottages. Click here for a looksie.
