Cityscapes

Just to get myself used to blogging - and to introduce you to my already finished quilts and add some pictures.

 I'd like to introduce you to my very first piece of quilting and design. It's based on an idea published in the Austrian "Patchwork- und Quiltjournal", but I changed it... quite... a bit.

I called it "Cityscapes" and it's a wall hanger that usually hangs above our sideboard in the dining room.


It's made up of EPP'd Inner City Blocks, the biggest one the size of one inch and going down to 1/2 inch. I used Moda's "Over the Rainbow" jelly roll for the colours, the background fabric is just some Batik I got at my local quilt shop.

Unfortunately the picture does not show the quilting quite well, so I did a closeup of the biggest of the three cities.

At least you can guess that all the blocks seem to hang on yellow lines, while they are spanned to the bottom by blue lines. When the light plays over it on our wall, it's really fascinating and sometimes the cities even seem to dance. Maybe I'll be able to get a better picture when I'm using the real camera, not only the mobile phone.

Thanks for coming by. Please check the other beautiful quilts at http://ihavetosay.typepad.com/randi/show-and-tell-tuesday/
