      I so love your version. I am new here and just getting my fabrics together. I love your use of batiks. Inspiration for me. Thanks.

      Love your quilt! The little houses are adorable! Did you create the patterns? I especially like the one with palm trees since I live in Florida. Would you mind sharing or selling that pattern? Thank you! ([email protected])

      Semi finish….. ran out of black binding… long story… mis calculated. I think I’ll finish with a strip of the background. It’s at the bottom. Where I plan on hanging … it may not be too obvious
      Also. I enjoyed this experience so much and admire the quilts that we all did… now onto the ‘The Garden Party’!

        I doubt you will notice the small amount of binding at the bottom. Congratulations on being done before the years end! Quite an accomplishment.

      I hope you can see this….I decided to put my ‘label’ on the front… I couldn’t get my picture of my name and year to upload

        The top is finished!!! What a great challenge this has been and I LOVE the results. I switched out the two towers from Australia with the Peace Tower in Ottawa and our local Calgary Tower. It's good to be challenged sometimes and I want to thank Wendy Williams for designing such a fun pattern and Barbara Black for the great additional instructions - could not have done it without you! Hope to have it quilted in the New Year.

        I have not finished my quilt yet but I wanted to share my replacements for the four iconic buildings since I won’t be a member after January 1st.
        I chose 4 lighthouses. Newport, RI, Nobska, Cape Cod,
        Key West Lighthouse, and Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia. I am from RI, I live on Cape Cod, I frequently visit Key west, and have family from Nova Scotia. I hope you like them.
        I have also used machine felting for tree tops, and will use colored pencils to shadow lighthouses since they are so white! Thank you. This has been a great year doing this project. Thank you Barbara for all your help and advice.

          My top is finished - I'm pleased with the results. I have decided to have it quilted instead of doing it myself. This will be my first quilt to be quilted by check. Thank you Barbara for all the advise along the way. It's inspiring to see all of the finished pieces popping up.

            I am finished the top and am busily quilting it. Enjoyed the process and the challenges. Loved looking at everyone’s work, so I thought I better share too.
            I drafted the CN tower in Toronto, and Race Rocks lighthouse here in Victoria, BC. We kayaked out to it once on a perfect day. Still need to put a clock face on Big Ben. Nancy D

              This quilt was almost the death of me. (Various profanity was spoken while forcing it to my will.)I know I sound dramatic but putting it together was very challenging for me, but it is done! I changed out the 4 small houses to my home, my cabin, the house I grew up in and my grandparents house. The tall buildings were updated to reflect places special to me.
              Honestly, if I knew that this quilt required more skill than I had I may not have started it. I was not ready to admit defeat so I never gave up. It is beautiful to me. Thank you Barbara and all you other quilters for inspiring me.

                Lisa E, you should be proud of yourself for your perseverance. This will be a special quilt for you to enjoy now.

                Your photos are most likely too large. Resize them smaller and try again.
