BCGQAL LogoWelcome to Week 6 of the {Big} City Girl QAL!

Please visit the {Big} City Girl Flickr group, click here!  So many gorgeous blocks have popped up this week.  It’s worth a visit!  Thank you all for sewing along and interpreting the designers blocks so nicely.

This week our designer is Marit from Ålesund, Norway. Marit shares many pictures of her charming city on her blog. You must visit her to see!  She has sewn two versions of her applique block as well.


I’ll just show one version here as more incentive for you to visit her.  I love the crisp modern design of this block.  Marit chose to loosely interpret the sunflower that she found as an architectural detail on a building. Her tutorial can be found on her blog.

A big thank you to everyone who joined the Linky Party this past week. We will announce the winner next week.

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
