{Big} City Girl QAL-Paris

BCGQAL LogoWelcome to Week 5 of the {Big} City Girl QAL!

The number of completed blocks and new designs is growing in the {Big} City Girl Flickr group.  Have you checked them out yet?  If not, click here!

This week our designer is Sylvie from France with a design from Paris. I think everyone would agree that when one thinks of Paris, they think of the Eiffel Tower. And sure enough, Sylvie designed an Eiffel Tower block for us! Here is her version of her design. I am loving the background print.

La tour Eiffel

Her pattern can be downloaded here.

It’s Linky Party time! If you have completed a block from the {Big} City QAL or designed your own city block AND have not yet entered it in a linky party, please link up!

3 bag patterns AND


6 Fat Quarters of Glimma by Lotta Jansdotter

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 schedule:

September 1: Aylin from Germany with Berlin and Istanbul
