Guess what? I have a quilt block in Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Volume 6! This edition hits newsstands November 13th, and it’s full of some pretty inspired patterns. From traditional to modern, I’m always so impressed by the new designs people can come up with.
As you can see, it’s a very geometric design, and it’s great for stash-busting since it makes use of very thin strips and tiny squares. Of course, you can mix up the colors as well, and in this version I went for a gray background and slightly more subdued hues in the buildings.
I actually came up with the design before moving to my new home in the middle of the city, but it’s quite appropriate for my current urban living. This block is great for stringing together in a row since the cityscape motif naturally lends itself to a long horizon, so I took advantage of that characteristic when deciding on an arrangement for this little quilt.
I’m also thinking this block would also make for a nice table or bed runner. What items or block arrangements would you make from a Cityscape block, or what colors would you use?
