  • Pattern



  1. Enlarge pattern to 22" X 16" on tracing paper.
  2. Glue 2 sheets of STYROFOAM together along 18" sides, using toothpicks to reinforce seam. Let dry thoroughly.
  3. Mark off a 1" frame around the 24" x 18" sheet. Center pattern inside frame and transfer pattern onto surface of sheet. Use a ruler and pencil to score the pattern lines onto the STYROFOAM; the lines should be felt through fabric.
  4. For frame, cut (2) 22" X 3" and (2) 22 1/2" X 3" strips of fabric and (4) 20" X 2" and (4) 22" X 2" strips of batting.
  5. Cut apart pattern pieces. Cut all pieces except windows from fabric, adding 1/4" to all sides.
  6. Cut three layers for each window section. The first layer is from the sky color and covers the whole window area. The second layer, glued on top of sky fabric, is the window shade or lace curtain. The final layer, glued over shade, is the curtain or drape.
  7. Use patterns to cut batting for all pieces except sky, grass and windows; pieces should be the same size or slightly smaller than pattern pieces. If desired, omit batting layer on first floor sections. Cut double layers of batting for porch roof, porch floor and sidewalk.
  8. Layer (2) 20" batting strips along front and sides of top of frame; glue in place. Place 22" X 3" fabric strip over batting so 1/4" extends over scored lines. Position putty knife on scored lines and push 1/4" seam allowance into the foam; glue excess fabric to back. For a clean, crisp "seam," hold the putty knife straight up and down and work on a large flat surface. Tuck in stray fabric with a knife; carefully trim excess fabric. Finish tucking frame, using remaining batting and fabric strips.
  9. Starting with sky and grass, continue to center and tuck batting and fabric pieces into foam.
  10. Assemble windows (see step 6) and glue to quilt. Glue on lace or bead tie-backs
  11. Cut wood baluster into (2) 4 1/2" pieces. Paint spindles and baluster white. When dry, glue to both sides of porch. Glue on door handle and knocker.
  12. Cut (2) 1 1/2" X 1/2" fabric rectangles for chimneys; following photo, glue on wall hanging.
  13. Glue lace along rooftops, roof edges, tops of chimneys, under windows and along front of porch.
  14. Glue hanger to the back about 1" from top edge. Hang and enjoy your new quilt!

This is awsome

I think there is a great number of books to choose from. I look forward to trying out some of these beautiful quilts.

I love this pattern!! I saved it to my pattern box since I can't do it just now. I'm trying to get three little girls some Easter dresses made, so that's pretty well got my time taken up. But I will do this Victorian house. I absolutely love anything Victorian. I'll probably use lighter colors for mine than what is shown in the picture. But I'm so excited to begin picking out the pieces of material I want to use. There are so many lovely calico and Keepsake materials out right now. It's gonna be fun, fun, fun!!!! Thanks for this pattern! Myra Wade
