Color My World Roads


There is quite a bit of preparation when making the road portion of Color My World BOM. I strip pieced the little white piece to 2 strips of black. Then, they were cut to smaller pieces. I also had to cut the solid black from strips. The piece with the road had to be trimmed so it would be at the correct angle. I'm not comfortable working with curved pieces, but the prep work made this very simple. There was also a paper piecing method that was made of 2 solid black pieces and 2 road pieces. I had to make 16 of those.  Once you sewed them all together into a circle, it was time to sew it onto the Mariner's Compass.


I matched each point to a seam of the road. I'm not sure how, but it just worked. I pinned a lot and just took my time. This is the inner road. This piece will be attached to the bottom of the houses that are also sewn into a circle. But before I do that, I'm going to make the outer road that is sewn onto the top of the houses. I've got all my pieces cut. I just have to trim to insure the correct angle and then paper piece. This road is going to be so long! I feel I have a better idea of what I'm doing now. Let's hope I don't screw it up!!

  2. Looks great. I haven't attempted it yet but it was helpful to read how you did your inside road.

    1. Thanks! I'm starting the outer road now. It's so much longer than the inner road. This may take awhile!
