This week, our designer is Julianna – Sewing under Rainbow from Poland with the Warsaw Mermaid.  This is a complicated block but I hope you will still give it a go!  I love Julianna’s fabric choices, especially the sky with birds and the mermaid’s tail.

Thank you to everyone who joined the Linky Party this past week.  We will announce the winner next week as the link was not yet closed at the time we were writing our posts.

Every third week there will be a linky party on my blog as well as on Aylin’s blog where you can share your city blocks for a chance to win prizes. You can either follow the tutorials shared by the designers or design your own blocks. Any city themed blocks will qualify.  All blocks qualify once only and must be sewn.   The final link up will be for the grand prize and those must be finished items (pillows, totes, etc) using the blocks or a quilt top (quilt tops need not be quilted and bound yet).

I hope you will continue to quilt along with us.  Here is the upcoming schedule:

September 1: Aylin from Germany with Berlin and Istanbul
September 8: Alyce – SewBlossomHeart from Japan with Tokyo
September 15: Julianna – Sewing under Rainbow from Poland with Warsaw

  1. Wow! That mermaid is beautiful! I think I need more paper piecing practice before trying it, but I want to make it!!

  2. What an amazing block! the fabric chosen for the hair, sky (love those birds) and rock are especially perfect. The effect of the hair blowing in the wind is great!
