    This was fun and challenging as well! I couldn’t wait to get each months addition. I used fabrics from my stash, and it was such fun. It’s definitely a scrap quilt! I also included some of my grandchildren’s favorite characters. If you look close, you’ll see Elsa, and Mickey, and Lucy. Also, being from Pennsylvania and graduating from Pitt, I designed my version of the cathedral of learning after quite a bit of trial and error! A learning experience to be sure! I even included a bit of Penn state, where I work. I’m very happy with the colorful result. Now I need to add a border snd quilt it! (I have it on my living room carpet, and it needs a good press. Borders and quilting to happen after the holidays! Thank you to Wendy snd Barbara, and the videos were great!

    No one has asked, I have NO idea and wouldn't begin to count now. Occasionally, I do like it know how many pieces are in a long-term project. Then, I keep count as I make each block, using a spreadsheet. Doing it after the quilt is done would be too much work. So if you want to know, keep count from the beginning.

      Finished today. I really enjoyed this BOM. For the skyscrapers I did the Seattle Space Needle and the Point Atkinson Lighthouse. Houses and building are Kaffe Collective fabrics and background is sunflower grunge. Off to the quilter later this week.

        Other than adding a face to Big Ben, I have finished my Color My World quilt top. It feels great to have accomplished that before I get distracted by Garden Party Down Under! Thank you TQS, Barbara Black and Wendy Williams for brightening my year and building my confidence as a quilter.

          Kate, your top is beautiful I particularly like the colors of your Mariners Compass. Great job.

        I’ve finished the quilting and extremely happy with the finished quilt, used 24 colors and matched bobbin with top thread. My backing is more a teal cotton shot than it appears in the photo. I substituted one of the building with a building on The Ohio State campus and embroidered the names of the 4 “corners” in a thread to match my background

          Finally ready to quilt it. I have been trying hard to get this finished before the end of the year. I was worried that it wouldn’t fit together without major corrections, but it went together much easier than I thought. Thank you Barbara for all your tips throughout this BOM. I’m happy with the results.

            Top just needs the final border for floating the design!

                I had the same issue! Apparently there are videos but they’re not posted in The Quilt Show the same as all other months. I truly enjoyed doing the BOM until the end my out edge is way to big so I’m assuming I’ve done something wrong, I’ve spent a lot of time and money so I’m going to do my best to finish alone.

              This is my first BOM and it was a blast (well, maybe some months more than others...fitting the roads/buildings together was more nerve-wrecking than fun). Just need to give Big Ben a clockface and then I'll be ready to start quilting. The quilting should only take a couple of months...hopefully. As Cindy Needham says..."stitch every stinking seam"...and there are a LOT of seams! BTW...this was done on my first sewing machine, a 1976 Bernina Nova...worked like a charm.

                I finished my quilt top. Now just need to quilt it. Very happy with how this project came out. I made a Seattle Space Needle and a NW Coastal Totem Pole for 2 of my tall corner blocks. Thanks for a great BOM and all the work to make this successful for the quilters.

                  I found it at my local quilt shop. Made by Westfield Laser and is the Mini Totem. It is laser cut with adhesive on the back. It worked out pretty well for the space.

                The videos for Months 11 and 12 are the LIVE broadcasts done in November and December. Find them on the first page of the Color My World patterns under Facebook Live.
