I've been gathering fabric and trying to get block pieces cut a week early so I can stay ahead. We figured two blocks each week for the first half of the book. The second half will just be one a week (those blocks are larger and more time consuming it appears). If we stay on track we should be done with ALL 75 blocks in the Patchwork City book by the first week of December. That will give us the rest of December to put the blocks together and finish our quilt by the end of the year!
Here are a few of the quilt patterns in the book. If you get behind and run out of steam don't worry! Some patterns use only a minimal amount of the blocks. Make a quilt with what you have. :)
Some people are using a certain fabric collection for this and to be honest I sort of wish I went in that direction. It would have made fabric selection a lot easier.
I'm going the scrappy route though because I have a certain color scheme in mind that I want this quilt in.
I'll be using the blue/gray colors from Alison Glass's Sunprints collection, Cotton and Steel fabrics, Moda Grunge, Moda Weave, and anything else I can get my hands on that include blue, black, deep purple, fuchsia, etc.
Please join us!
On Instagram we are @faithlovefabric and @avintagefairytale
We'll be using the #patchworkcityqal and going to give out fabric throughout the quilt a long.
I think most people are on Instagram but if you aren't and want to join let me know. I can probably figure out a linky thing to put on here each week where you can submit your block photos and be entered to win the giveaways or if you just want to link a blog post. I also created a group on Flickr if you don't have Instagram OR a blog and want to join in. I've made it as easy as I can. :)
Book can be ordered from here or any bookstore if you haven't purchased from Kylie or have it already.
I'll be back next Sunday with the first 2 blocks!
