    Here's a photo after Month 4 is completed. I'm a little concerned about having too much fabric at the bottom of the houses, but hope this problem will be rectified with the insertion of the road. Fingers crossed. Loving this project! Thanks Barbara and Wendy!!

      If you can pin it to a design wall or a bed top, you can mist the inner circle with water and the fabric may draw up a bit. That’s what I did to mine and it helped tremendously!

    My photo of the ring. It was not flat but I tightened up some of the seams and now it is flat enough. However my inner ring diameter is 17" not 18" as someone else measured. I do wish we had more measurements to compare with a finished quilt top to doublecheck our progress.

      I saw where Barbara said it should be 17-1/2” raw edge to raw eagle. It will be 18”” after we sew the the street and compass in.

    One of my local students, Evelyn S, came to class this week with her Small House Ring all together. Such pretty colors and so different from the original.

      Being from Down Under I decided to do things a little differently and give my trees a more natural look. Pretty happy with the result and the ring size works too. Yeah!

        I almost did my trees like you did but decided to showcase the different fabrics for all the trees.

      Yes, that is the recommendation.

        Still a little fullness to my inner ring even after tightening some seams. Hopefully I can ease in.

          Josephine, You might want to wait until you get the inside road done to decide you need to tighten up
          the fullness. It might fit perfectly when you stitch it to the ring. You will know when you pin the road circle. HelenW

          I’ve finished my trees and now have the pairs all sewn together in a circle. It seemed like it was flat on the outer circumference but a wee bit wavy on the inner circle. I just spritzed/misted that area with water and they have laid down now!

            I’ve never assembled a quilt like this, it’s exciting & kinda nerve racking at the same time. My trees are doing their own haphazard thing but hopefully it’ll all come together nicely.

            All the first 32 houses are finished.... This is first quick pic. Thank you, Wendy, Barbara, Alex, and The Quilt Show for taking me on this journey. I am loving this quilt. So much fun to make.

              Couldn't do the plain black tree trunks. Couldn't do the plain green trees. Just like I couldn't do the houses with plain fabric. I am really happy with the way they turned out.

                Barbara, I'm having trouble viewing my photos. What am I doing wrong?

              Well after a lot of seam adjustments, my "ring" is almost flat - may need some more adjusting, but not today. I am loving this quilt.

              Caught up and ready for roads! Thanks to @chuckndash for the idea to add stripes to the Mariner's Compass.

                  my little houses waiting for trees..... and here they are. I didn't want just solid greens for my trees so I chose a modern-looking tree printed fabric
