Welcome to week four of the City Tiles Quilt Along!
This marks the half way point of the quilt along! I know life gets busy and these blocks take some time so don’t stress if you are a bit behind! We have a catch up week coming up. Plus I think you will find others right along side you at what ever stage of the quilt along you are at. No stress allowed! ;)
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 four….
- Large Block Version: Make 3 blocks. This week we will be making three blocks for a total of nine.
- Small block Version: Make 6 blocks. If you are making the small block version, make six blocks this week for a total of nine.
- Post on Instagram: What is one random thing on your bucket list? Don’t have a list? Start one right now with one thing ;)
My progress on the City Tiles Quilt Along

Accent squares: All the same in this SS bluebird fabric

I’m caught up on my six blocks and working on this week’s blocks. I’m running out of room on my wall ;)
From the hashtag last week:
I learned to sew from my mother. I grew up sewing a lot of my own clothes, especially prom and other dance dresses. I really appreciated how my mother would come to my rescue when I made a mistake and unpicked my “booboos”. She didn’t want me to get discouraged. Mom didn’t quilt, but her mother did. Sarah Elizabeth Davidson was a devoted quilter, and she made me a darling Sunbonnet Sue quilt. My love of quilting definitely comes from her! I have really loved the process of working on this #citytilesquilt during the #citytilesqal #bonnieandcamillefabric
#citytilesqal 6 blocks, 10 to go This is my story for this week assigment. I spend the 2006-2007 school years’s in Red Deer, Alberta. I was taking a year off after my law degree with the purpose to improve my english and other things. I visited a quilt show that was hosted in Red Deer at the Spring 2007 and I knew that I want to learn how to quilt after that. I love the colors and the texture. At this time, I was an avid knitter and I’m still am today. I had a college student income, no sewingmachine and no quilting notions. So I postpone the project. Almost 10 years later, in the fall 2015, I was pregnant and had my permanent job. This was the perfect timing to learn how to quilt. I had a small sewingmachine, a 6×24 ruler, a cutting mat and a rotary cutter. I bought a few Crafsty Classes and with those tools and YouTube tutorials, I teach myself how to quilt. Since Fall 2015, I had bought two others sewing machine, give away the small one to my neighboor, bought a lot more quilting notions and we moved to a bigger house so I have a small studio. I’m hooked and I enjoy very much the quilting community on IG.
