What's New at City Blocks

Magic Pillowcase Workshop

    What's a Magic Pillowcase? An easy way to make a custom pillowcase with beautifully finished seams and cuff. What a perfect way to cheer up your bedroom for summer. We have 6 kits ranging from bold and bright to bicycle themed to soft floral patterns.

 If you're a beginner sewist/quilter this is a great project to start with. Join us at a fun 2 hour workshop on Saturday May 18th and learn about french seams and the burrito method! This workshop is one in our Simply Sewing series.

Goodness Gracious and Wild North - New Fabrics

Wild North


                     Goodness Gracious                    


Wild North from Windham Fabrics might be the perfect fabric for that cabin quilt you’ve been thinking about (even if like me, you don’t have a cabin!). Designed by Gareth Lucas, an illustrator who lives in the UK. He brings an array of woodland creatures to life in a palette of forest green, rustic brown, vibrant ochre and earthy orange. You can check out more of Gareth's work on Instagram @garethlucasart.

  Goodness Gracious is also from Windham Fabrics, designed by Laura Heine. At City Blocks, we know Laura from using her designs in our quilt collage class. This collection is all things flowers, butterflies and her signature collage prints brought life in jewel tones to soft pastels. This collection is perfect for a wide variety of quilting and sewing projects!

Hot Off The Ironing Board!

From our sample maker:

"I am making the shop sample and I am having loads of fun. I haven't done much applique and have never done this technique. It is quite easy and a refreshing break from sewing quarter inch seams. If you like cutting out paper dolls and putting together jigsaw puzzles, this quilt is for you."

We are a member-owned co-op and everyone is welcome to shop at our store at 3400 Bloomington Ave So. in Minneapolis and online. We carry high-quality, 100% cotton quilting fabrics including: Batiks, Kaffe Fassett, Australian aboriginal fabrics, Tula Pink, Tilda's World from Norway and many other designers. You will find notions, patterns, books, batting and incredible customer-service. We are all quilters, crafters and sewists!
