African Village Quilt Step 3

African Village Hut 3

African Village Hut 3

We are up to Step 3 of my African Village Quilt.  Here is the 3rd hut.  It is a little more complex to paper piece than Hut 1 and Hut 2 but it's really not hard to sew.

The two corners of the roof extend beyond the hut walls and are on separate pattern pieces.  I recommend that before you cut out these 2 pieces (D and E of the pattern)  that you draw an arrow on the pattern to indicate which way is up.  That will just make it a bit easier to know which way they attach to the roof when you are sewing all the pieces together.

Here is a photo of D and E ready to be attached to the hut roof.

This is the final hut needed for the Village and it is the last of the paper pieced blocks for this quilt.  

Here are the links for the 2 PDF files for the African Hut 3 pattern.

Next Monday, August 11, 2014, I'll post Step 4 for my African Village Quilt.  We'll be sewing the 2 diamond strips then. 

Please do leave me a comment. I'd love to know what you are doing if you are sewing along with me. Thanks!
