I’m excited to announce the City Tiles quilt along! I’ve been wanting to make another version of this quilt and a quilt along has been requested several times. Soooo….. here it is!!
Join the 1,100+ others in this quilt along!
RSVP for the Quilt along
City Tiles is a fun throw quilt with a lot of different possibilities. The pattern itself has two block options. The City Tiles quilt above is the larger block option.
I gave away my original City Tiles quilt so I’ll be making a similar version of the original using linen and maybe even a flannel backing.
This quilt along will take place virtually and have a relaxed pace. Sewing along together is a very motivating way to finish a quilt. These blocks are a little on the tedious side so breaking them up into an 8 week quilt along is helpful!
There will be a few prizes along the way from the #citytilesqal hashtag so be sure to jump on Instagram and post your progress each week!
Here are the quilt along details:
January 15th, 2018 – February 26th 2018
