{Big} City Girl QAL-Sydney, Australia

BCGQAL LogoWelcome to Week 8 of the {Big} City Girl QAL!


Our guest designer today is Jane who blogs at Quilt Jane.  She has designed this beautiful block representing Sydney Harbour. Her block has a pieced background, appliqued opera house, and machine stitched bridge.  I think that the fabric choices for this block are simply perfect!  Click over to Jane’s blog for more information about Australia and for the complete tutorial.

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).

And this week, is a Linky Party week! Link up below to win some great prizes. They are:


3 bag patterns and

the intreped thread

A $30 gift certificate!
