Block 26 – City Girl.   The title here reminds me of my mother.  She was a City Girl in that she lived in Brooklyn and had to commute (by subway, of course) to downtown New York for her job.  The mass of buildings on the city blocks appear to be represented here with the 9-patch center.  The points remind me that she sparkled with her fashion sense that can be seen so often in the fashion minded New York City.  

A straightforward block that gives us a chance to sparkle on our own.

How are you doing with your Stitch Pink Quilt?  If you haven’t been able to piece everyday, no worries!  Just be sure to download or print out the patterns to have for later. 

And today is another EXTRA TREAT, this time for those that enjoy embroidery.


This would have been appropriate with block 12 – House on a Hill.  Yet, I think it is perfect here, as I think about my mother.  She left the city and moved across the country, to have a home with a garden and raise a family.  Anne Sutton of Bunny Hills Designs brings us this adorable pattern.  Click here on “Sweet Meadow”.    

I just might use this as the label on the back of my Stitch Pink Quilt.  I better start tracing, so I can stitch it up in time for the finish of my quilt. 

Life can be fast paced like in the city, but it is okay to take the time you need – just sparkle while you enjoy the stitching!
