Amy FriendUncategorized7 Comments


Aylin has come up with a fun idea for a quilt along and asked me to join her. It’s called the {Big} City Girl QAL and the idea is that you will create blocks that represent either your favorite city,  cities you have traveled to, or cities you would like to visit. There is a lot of room to be creative and make your quilt unique. There will be a pattern or tutorial every Sunday for 13 weeks from designers all over the world. These designers will be sewing blocks representing their cities. You can always chose to simply follow along and recreate their blocks as well.

The designers are:

Alyce – SewBlossomHeart from Japan with Tokyo
Amy – Badskirt from Australia with Sydney
Amy- During Quiet Time from USA with Boston
Annabella – liferichpattern from Morocco with Marrakech
Aylin – Nilya2011 from Germany with Berlin and Istanbul
Felicity – Felicity Quilts from Canada with Vancouver
Julianna – Sewing under Rainbow from Poland with Warsaw
Karen – Blueberry Park from UK with London
Lotje – Lotje M from The Netherlands with Delft
Marit – Sy-elsk-lev from Norway with Aalesund
Rachel – Wooden Spoon from New Zealand with Wellington
Sil – silort from Brazil with Brasilia
Sylvie – -Vivie from France with Paris

Every third week there will be a Linky-Party with lots of great prizes from:





Please come and join our flickr group and show us your fabric choices, inspirations, blocks and patterns.

The QAL will begin September 1st. As you can see, my block design will be Boston inspired. Any ideas for me? What would you like to see? Would you prefer paper piecing or applique? I’d love some suggestions!
