Bec's Little House in the City

I mentioned in my goals post that this year I'm planning to make the Metro Area quilt from Patchwork City. I've been so excited about this book since I first caught a glimpse of the cover and it has not disappointed. It's filled with 75 modern quilt blocks that go together to make a gorgeous sampler quilt. I've spent the last 12 months hoarding collecting Lizzy House fabrics and decided this would be the perfect project to delve into my collection and start chopping.


So far I've made two blocks. I've decided to work my way through the book from beginning to end making each block as I go so I don't leave all the harder ones until last. This block is called Forest Park.


And this one is Donut Shop.


I'm so excited with how they're looking so far! I've had this thing in my head for so long I was begining to doubt it would work, but these two have turned out better than I imagined and fuelled my enthusiasm no end. I'm aiming to finish a block or two a week and have at least a finished top by the end of the year. So far I'm on track... :-P

Edit: linking this up to WIP Wednesday with Freshly Pieced... you might see it there again sometime!

  1. These blocks look really good, great colours, combinations and fussy cutting. This will be an exciting quilt to work your way through, sounds like a great plan!

  2. Your blocks are beautiful (great colours). One or two blocks a week sounds like a realistic goal to me. I look forward to watching your progress.
