Remember that modern quilt I was making. It’s finished.

I am calling it City Blocks. Thank you to Joe Cunningham for such a fun workshop which he calls “Rock the Block”. For more information on Joe, take a look at his web site here.
I backed the quilt with fabric I picked up a few years ago at Ikea. I also used a facing binding instead of the traditional method of binding.

Last week I was at a quilt retreat at a nunnery in Temecula, California. It is such a lovely spot for a retreat. I captured this photo on our way to dinner.

While there I worked on several small projects I needed to catch up on. I did manage to make this quilt top for philanthropy.

I am thinking it will make some little girl very happy.

I hope you have a good week and

Quilt happy,

I'm curious about the process for making City Blocks. It looks like you did a lot of cutting up and resewing blocks? Did you enjoy the process? Just wondering if I want to tackle something like this.

I really like "facing" the edges of quilts - gives a nice, clean look. Your link quilt will indeed make a little girl happy. Being at a nunnery would make for a unique retreat!

You accomplished so much at retreat. It looks like a beautiful spot too. LOVE the yellows, blacks and grays.

Yes....that will be a perfect quilt for a girl.
