Welcome to week five of the City Tiles Quilt Along!
It’s week five out of eight this week for the City tiles quilt along! We are cruising right along :) If you feel like you are falling behind a bit, don’t you worry! Next week is actually a catch up week so set aside some time over the next week or two and get those blocks done.
Going through the hashtag every morning has become my new ritual. I love seeing the progress you guys are making on this quilt. And I’m loving all the beautiful and unique versions out there.
Take some time to go through the hashtag when you get a chance and see what everyone else is up to! I love how active this hashtag is staying :)
Here we go on Week five….
- Large Block Version: Make 3 blocks. This week we will be making three blocks for a total of twelve.
- Small block Version: Make 6 blocks. If you are making the small block version, make six blocks this week for a total of 21.
- Post on Instagram: If you aren’t quilting, you are ______. Besides quilting, what other activities do you enjoy?
My progress on the City Tiles Quilt Along
My City Tiles Quilt:
Large Block Version
Center tiles: I’m using mostly Cotton and Steel Bluebird fabrics.
Outlines: All the same in the navy Cotton and Steel Sprinkles
Accent squares: All the same in this SS bluebird fabric
Background: Essex Yarn Dyed Linen in Flax
I’m up to 10 blocks as of right now. So that means I’ll be making two more during the week. I’ve saved the directional fabrics for last ;)
From the hashtag last week:
This week’s blocks ✅ in the #citytilesqal hosted by @emily_dennis_ 9-18” blocks complete. This week we were prompted to tell something on our bucket list. I strive to live a life of contentment come what may and every day is a gift. One day I hope to open a successful Etsy shop where I sell quilts I’ve made and earn enough to allow some of those extra things in life. Time with my family tops that bucket list.
Week 3 of my #citytilesqal blocks. I was trying to think of what is on my bucket list to accomplish. I have been wanting to start doing some of my own straight line quilting instead of sending everything out to a long arm quilter. I watch tutorials and read everything I can find and am hopefully slowly getting up the courage to try😬
