It's Month 10 and we've got an easy month: 4 Little Houses in the City. Even if you are not making Color My World, this is a terrific little house for other projects:

These are pretty easy to make, there is only one piecing step that might seem a bit confusing.
Pieces 2 and 3 are the Window sections and they are made separately, then joined before being sewn to piece 1, the Door section. My friend Pam provides me with hers so I can share these visuals with you. She writes on the paper--what fabrics go where, and that really helps. There are some tiny pieces of House above those small windows.
Here you see pieces 2 and 3 upside down--they are ready to be sewn together to create the Window row and can then be added to the lower Door section:
|Press freezer paper to back of tree top|
|Use a pencil to draw the turn line at the lower edge|
|Trim the lower edge about 3/8" beyond the pencil line, turn and press the seam allowance under|
|Remove the freezer paper template--the tree top is ready to stitch in place with a straight or decorative stitch|
