Cityscape

This project was started in Hilde Morin's "Cityscape" workshop (which I wrote about here), and then set aside - the sad fate of many workshop projects, in my experience!

Making a piecing plan.

This one, however, has been revived. Feeling inspired over the holidays, I reworked a few things and made a piecing plan for this bad boy.

Some disassembly required!

Some slicing and dicing, too.

It's all part of the plan!

The biggest challenge will be piecing the curved, pink building into the picture. It is semi-attached to the piecing on the left, and needs to be pieced "in front of" the tall buildings that will tuck in behind.

Things look a bit weird at the moment, but I have faith in the process, so will press on.

Fresh off the Frame - a new quilter's first quilt (which also happens to be my first client quilt of the year).

And, here's a glimpse of another client quilt (I've since loaded on my frame) . . . more buildings! How cool is that?

I've filled the sky with swirls to contrast the straight lines of the buildings. I'm almost finished, but it was too dark by then for pictures. Maybe tomorrow!

My prayer flag is a bit frosty these days, but my wishes for a Happy New Year to you are warm!

Frosty prayer flag!

  1. Interesting watching your progress on the Cityscape. Projects sometimes need to be put away for a while until you are able to look at them with fresh eyes and fresh inspiration.

  2. Yep I too enjoy watching your process. I also love how your quilted wishbones kinda made a heart shape too! The swirls for the background to the buildings remind me of clouds. Looking good on your end of the world for sure!:)

  6. You've been busy! I need to get over my paperwork and get back to quilting. I go so long and then I need my quilting 'fix'. Have fun finishing your city scape. Oh, and I wanted to say, how refreshing that jelly roll quilt is - simple, and it just speaks 'cozy'.

  8. Happy New Year to you, and hope you had a wonderful Christmas. Your city scape is looking interesting, cool to have a client quilt along the same theme. And your prayer flag looks even better frosty!
