    Month 12 Skyscrapers Blog Now Up

    My instructions for Month 12 are now available:


    Next Sunday November 7, the blog will feature tips for final assembly of the entire quilt.

    The LIVE broadcast Friday November 5, noon Central time, will show the Skyscrapers in progress. The LIVE broadcasts remain available on YouTube, The Quilt Show channel.

    This seems to be the only place to submit CMW Month 12 questions. I do not understand how one can use the guidelines on the pattern for the black bias tape to make the structure of the Eiffel Tower and Centrepoint Tower, since the pattern will be ironed to the wrong side of the block. I watched the month 12 video and read your blog, Barbara, and did not see a demo on how this works. Since there are no other month 12 questions I guess I am the only one who doesn't get it! :-( So close to being done (finally!) and really want to finish this thing strong. Thanks for you help. BTW, the videos for month 11 and month 12 are no longer part of the BOM 2021 pages. Someone kindly posted a YouTube link in the comments, but you have to search for it. Also, there are a lot of unanswered comments there.

      I didn’t make videos for months 11 and 12. The blog and LIVE was enough to supplement the pattern.
      I am afraid I don’t understand the question. The pattern is not ironed to the wrong side of the block. The pattern shows where to place the bias tape on top of the gray background fabric.

      Once the year is over, I won’t be able to answer specific questions about prior year patterns. Hundreds of hours go into the Videos, Blogs, LIVE broadcasts and answering thousands of questions while we are making the current year Block of the Month. Those who pick up late can read/watch all that content. Or try contacting the designer, maybe she might answer but her time is limited too.

    I have finally reached the skyscraper section. I know I'm super slow! I'm wondering if anyone tried to make the Gateway Arch in St. Louis with any degree of success? I'd love to hear about the experience. Thanks!
