Coming soon: City Tiles Quilt Along

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!!

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

Duration: 8 weeks
