The last two Skyscrapers are here! We are so close to the end of this year-long project.
Centrepoint Tower is a landmark in Sydney, Australia, home to designer Wendy Williams. It resembles the Seattle Space Needle in the USA and could easily be adapted to be that Skyscraper if you wish.
Cut out the pieces carefully. Some of the sizes are pretty small. Should you prefer a bit more leeway, just cut the small ones a little larger.
There are lots of background pieces, some quite small, so you probably have plenty of bits of background left over to cut many of these pieces.
Section 1 is in two parts. JOIN THEM TO EACH OTHER BEFORE STARTING TO SEW. Glue works better than tape as you will be pressing with a hot iron during construction:
Follow the remaining instructions for each section, then join the sections to construct your Tower.

Don't be in a hurry to construct this one. It is not hard, just has lots of pieces and steps.
Again, there are lots of background pieces, many you can cut from your leftovers. I recommend piece (e) be cut 2" x 4" to make placement easier.
|One of my (d) units in Section 2 went missing|
Section 1 is made from TWO pattern pieces. Piece (a) is Background and will be basted to Piece (b) once all the Bias tape has been stitched to Piece (b). Follow the instructions carefully when placing the Bias Tape. Step 7 of the instructions for Section 1 explains Bias Tape is used to cover the basting where pieces (a) and (b) are joined.
Section 2 has FIVE pattern pieces. After BOTH units (d) are completed with Bias Tape, join them to unit (c), then sew units (e) to both outer edges.
Continue with each Section, following the instructions. When all the sections are complete, join them to construct your Eiffel Tower.

NEXT UP--ASSEMBLY of your COLOR MY WORLD QUILT. The blog post of Sunday November 7 will discuss this last step. You might not be ready yet, but you will have the information when you are ready.
