    I was pleasantly surprised at the ease in which the center sections came together! The videos and blog were very helpful, thank you!

      Roads attached and circle pretty flat. After pinning I hand basted roads to compass for easier sewing at the machine. Also did the same for the upper road and then attaching the the compass and houses. Only took a few minutes more and made sewing it all together a breeze.

        Liberata, That is a great idea to hand baste after pinning. I have used that in fiddly situations before with great success. HelenW

      I am afraid my finished circle may be a bit large, measuring 43.5 inches. Someone else commented hers measured 43 inches. Wondering if I should take my outer road off and re-do. My compliments on all the wonderful work. I can’t seem to post any likes.

          Thanks so much Barbara. I am just delighted that I am on track...so far. Btw, I think I used every pin I own for the roads.

            Thank you, Barbara, for the great videos and blog. This month was much more intimidating to think about than to actually do...step by step, millions of pins, and slow and steady sewing. Ready for the tall buildings.

            Haven’t sewn compass/rd to houses yet but both rds are attached. Attaching the Rds were a challenge!

              My center is together except for the outer road. I'm working on it. Pleased with it so far and it lies flat!

              I added the roads to my village. And all came together without problems

                My Center so far. Will wait to attach the outer roads when the rest of the buildings are done.

                  It took a while, but it’s good to have this part done.

                    Since I'm holding off on building my outer road, which will also include water, until the city buildings get started, I thought I'd share my wool on linen wholecloth quilt. This has been such an enjoyable experience. I've learned so much from everyone and appreciate all the encouragement with my out of the box take on this amazing design. It's been fun really making this my own. Happy Mother's Day to everyone!
