    The videos are under the Facebook Lives, found on the first page of the 2021 BOM patterns.

    Did you read the blogs I wrote to provide lots of instruction on Months 11 and 12? That is where I can explain things best and with the most detail.

        I substituted Chicago’s Sears Tower (now Willis) since I’m in Illinois. Planning to add some thread sketching to darken it a bit—Also added some thread sketching to the 4 small houses to match our last 4 homes we lived in. Added some ballerinas in the inner house doors & windows. Love this BOM & can’t wait for 2022! Thanks Barbara for great teaching
        That helped me actually complete this in the year it was intended!!!

        Here is my finished top. I personalised the small houses and put in the Auckland Sky Tower instead of the centre point tower as Auckland is home for me. I am looking forward to quilting it and having it finished.

          Debbie, I love the totem pole. Wish I would have thought of that. It definitely would have made it into my country version of

            Whew! Done and done! Can't believe I finished this in time to give it away for Christmas! The only major change I did was to put in parks in place of the city houses. We all need more green spaces in our lives! Cheers!!!!!

              So happy to be (almost) finished with my quilt top, using my stash of shot cottons and personalizing to include my "near and dear" cities and places. Looking forward to trying some embroidery to add some touches. I really enjoyed working on this unique pattern and love seeing so many beautiful photos on the Forum. Barbara's videos were a real highlight during this frustrating pandemic year, and I learned a lot.

                Two opposite corners feature my toronto CN Tower, and the Lighthouse at Peggy's Cove, N.S. The little houses in the city - I tried to give them a seasonal vibe - spring, summer fall and winter. Now to figure out the quilting. I will have a few puckers to quilt out I am sure! Thank you Babara so very much for all your guidance throughout this year.

                  Love your personal corners. Any chance you'd share your patterns? I'm no artist. I was born in Toronto so would love the CN Tower and I enjoyed Peggy's Cove. [email protected]

                My first BOM and so happy to get my design wall back. All my hand dyes except 2 tiny pieces of fabric, one is windows in my childhood home that is fabric from my grandmother and the big ben clock face star burst.

                  Wonderful. I can't imagine all the work in you hand dyes.

                Just finished quilting - it was a beast to manipulate on my small domestic machine, but overall a very satisfying project. The colors are actually much brighter than this photo. The upper right skyscraper is the California tower in Balboa Park, San Diego - my home town.

                    Hi. I’m new here and am just starting to plan my Color My World. I’m wondering what you used for your background. Thanks.

                  I am ready! It looks great and it was such a fun to make this quilt! Thanks to Barbara for all the good tips.
                  I had a bad surprise this morning. I made the winding towert of my hometown. It costs me one day and I was quiete satisfied with it. Yesterday evening I used water to erase the markings and the red batic fabric bleeded into the backround. So I had to made another corner, I made the castle tower of my hometown instead, was faster because easier.

                    How did you do your Statue of Liberty? Did you print it on the text fabric?
