    Attaching my ring and trees. The trees do add so much, I feel, to unify the circle. Everyone's work is just beautiful!

How will this lay flat? Right now I feel as though it needs 3 large tucks to lay flat. My seams are pressed open. They are 1/4", the entire center is a17.5".
    your measurement is right on target. The Mariners Compass is 14” finished, the Roads are 2” finished, they will fill the center space.

      Month 3 tells you to join the Small Houses into pairs and that those pairs will become a full circle “AFTER THE TREES ARE ADDED” . This is also shown and discussed in both Month 4 videos and the Month 4 Blog.

        Sharing my circle of houses (and trees) thus far. I'm finishing up on the four trees that are in the NSEW positions. Rather than using wool felt as I have done with my other trees and houses, I've decided to totally embroider these special trees. Spring tree is an ode to the flowering crab apple tree that stood in the front yard of the house I grew up in (gray house #9). I'm currently working on the summer tree, doing single chain stitches for the leaves.

        I am still waiting for my tree trunks to arrive, but I am LOVING this project and seeing everyone's individuality in the process.

          Beautiful Work Carole B... Sometimes I get a little frustrated with this new forum. I can't click on your pictures and make them
          bigger. I love looking at your exquisite detail. Can't see the crab apples. Maybe tomorrow the enlargement feature will work
          again. Right now I took time out to work on my Hook, Line and Sinker quilt. If you are familiar with Crabapple Hill website
          the pattern is there. One of my friends is doing it in hand embroidery, the way it was designed, I am making the pattern into
          applique and changing some of the block to represent we I live. HelenW

            Thanks, Helen! I know what you mean about the site. It's been rather wonky over the past week or so. I put in one ticket and will submit others. On my iphone, I can't get to your comment, but can on my laptop. That is an adorable quilt!

            I think I posted this in the wrong spot. Unfortunately, i am having a terrible time navigating the new website.

              I have completed all the housed. I used two colours for housed 1 and two. Then I realized that I could use more colours for houses three and four. Will that make a difference when I join them or should I mix them up a little and join 2 to 4 and 1 to 3. Ron

                My trees are finished. I decided to make my own fusible bias tape from a dark brown fabric for the tree trunks.

                  This is exactly the right spot to post your ring of small houses! What are your questions about the new Forum?

                    Arrange your houses in any way that pleases you. Most are using LOTS of colors.

                      My inner edge is a little wonky. I think I will wait to see how the roads fit and then adjust it a bit. Outer edge perfect.

                        I tried (to no avail) to post a picture of my ring of houses with treetops. I am trying again and keeping fingers crossed that I have figured out how to post photos on new website.

                          So much fun making these houses, I have used all fabrics from my stash. Ive added a couple of chimneys. Loving seeing how creative everyone is with their projects.
