    Hi Barbara,
    YOU ARE AWESOME!! Thank you so much for all of your instructions. I have been one of your “Silent” followers. I just joined The Quilt Show in August 2021. I started and finished Ricky Tims Kaleidoscope class, all the time looking at this years BOM. I really liked it, but thought it would be impossible to complete. I started watching your videos and wondering if I could do it. So, I jumped in and decided to give it a try. You are such a wonderful, encouraging instructor, I can’t thank you enough. I didn’t try to create any blocks other than the ones in the pattern. I did use my own fabric, because I was a bit late in purchasing the kit. So, here is my progress. Do I understand correctly that you will be the one teaching the BOM for 2022? I certainly hope so.
    Thanks again,
    Linda
    Linda, you just made my week! Posts like yours make all the hours worthwhile. My goal is to share what I have learned over many years to all those who want to learn. And, YES! I am going to lead you all through the 2022 BOM—big reveal is coming SOON!

      5 sections ironed together, then 5 vertical stripes sewn. Horizontal bars positioned using freezer paper as a guide then background sewn on. Even easier than appliquing on and much quicker than doing each section separately. The cross bars are only attached at the ends at the moment. Will either sew the edges now or most likely wait until the quilt is assembled and quilt them then. I used a small piece of freezer paper the right size and folded the edges over then glued each bar in position (after removing FP)
      before sewing the side seams. Thanks for the suggestion Barbara.

        I've finished all the buildings! Yay! This has been so much fun. Next week I'll put them in the outer row and get the quilt assembled.

          Here are my Skyscrapers. Almost there. Next job assembly. I went with three from the pattern, Big Ben, Eiffel Tower and the Sydney Tower. I needed another tower from the Southern Hemisphere so the fourth is the Petronas Towers, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. All towers have some meaning.

                My skyscrapers mostly reflect family locations. Sanibel Lighthouse, Redwood Tree, Seattle Space Needle and the Washington Monument. Would love to replace the Washington Monument with the Statue of Liberty but I'm a newbie and that seems to be above my skill level. I love being able to personalize this fabulous pattern. The small houses in the city represent our daughter's houses, out house and a family house on Sanibel Island FL.

                  Barbara, I thoroughly commend you for all your videos and hard work during this year. I am disappointed that the very last month with the hardest blocks, there is no video. I’m holding my breath!

                    The two LIVE broadcasts are the videos available for the end of this project. And my blogs, 3 in November, provide a lot of information.

                        Would you be interested in sharing your John Hancock building & Seattle Space Needle Pattern?

                        Love your Statue of Liberty. Would you be willing to sell your pattern? Thanks so much.
