    1) St Louis Arch
    2) Christ the Redeemer Statue in Rio de Janiero
    I posted a photo of a student's quilt with the St. Louis arch under Month 11--show your progress here. She is willing to share her drawing. The post is dated 11-7-2021

      Regarding the cutting instructions for one World Trade Center--- when it gives the quantities for the outer striped sections, are we supposed to divide the number of pieces between the two sides? It doesn't say to do that! or how do we know when to start using the different size pieces? Did I miss something?

        Read the instructions carefully. The pieces cut from Colors 2 and 3 make both Outer sections.

        There are only 3 lengths of each fabric. Use the size needed to fill the space on the pattern.

          I'm really confused with The Centerpoint Tower. Piece #3, letter h is Tower light g is tower dark and i is background. i looks like it is the seam allowance and I'm having a hard time deciphering which color goes where as it only lists base as grey and then you have tower dark and tower light. This doesn't look like it corresponds with the picture which has several colors of yellow, orange, etc. Is there a video that would go into a little more detail? Congratulations on your quilts in the show. You are marvelous!!!!

        Finished the quilt. I thought I had a picture but isn’t loading. I know you are going to talk about the quilting. I hope you will touch on threads and needle sizes I know you can see how Wendy’s was quilted from her pictures of the different months… but I am interested in the background. I couldn’t see that. I have so enjoyed this and am proud of myself for getting this accomplished. Thank you so much. Looking forward to next year!

            There are no videos for this month. Just the LIVE broadcasts--the first was November 5 and another is coming November 19. There is much information in the various blogs I wrote for Month 11 and 12.

              Hi! I cannot seem to find the blog written for Month 12. I found Month 11 with Big Ben and World trade Center but no info on Eiffel Tower and Centrepoint Tower. What am I doing wrong? Please Help!

            The pattern and cutting instructions are correct. The pieces i are TINY pieces of background that go on either side of the light yellow that is piece h. Those are seams # 1 and 2 of Section 3. Once that is done, add the darker gold on top and bottom of the narrow center section.

              I am workiing on One World. In the picture it looks like the horizontal stripes don't line up exactly, or in some cases not even closely, even from side to side. Is this correct or am I being overly picky?

                Yes and yes. They do not line up.

                  I am working on One World. From Wendy's picture it looks like the outside pieces of the tower have the darkest fabric at the top and fabric #2 as second as it is the fabric that is also in the centre. However, the pattern shows fabric 2 at the top and I noticed it is what Barbara used in her piece. Am I wrong or is Wendy's finished piece different than the pattern placement?

                    I followed the pattern. The photo may not show the complete design. As long as the fabrics alternate, the pattern works.

                  When sewing The Eiffel Tower together section 2 is quite a bit wider than Section 3. Cant figure out what I have done wrong.

                    Did you sew the Background piece c in upside down? The widest part of c is at the bottom. The two e pieces that go on the outside edges are sewn widest part at the top.

                      Saw answer to question .

                      Re the One World Building my question is … are the side building stripes meant to match up with Centre stripes? Or are they just random?

                      I would like to use the Statue of Liberty for one of my corner blocks. Does anyone have a pattern source to do this? I am not nearly talented enough to create this on my own!
