More of the 50 famous buildings of the world

Remember the 50 buildings of the world i am working on....slowly?  here are a few more blocks that are finished.

13 ... Hotel Del Coronado, Coronado, California     This is one of the last examples of the wooden Victorian beach resort...a luxury beachfront hotel.  I still have to applique tiny windows all over the thing.

Check out that 3/8" flag flying over the Hotel Del Coronado.   these blocks are getting crazy

24 ... Mission San Luis Rey    Oceanside, California   One of 21 Spanish missions established in California, this was started on June 13, 1798 by Padre Fermin Lasuen.

26 ... Burj Khalifa   Dubai, United Arab Emirates   The tallest man-made structure in the world; 2,717 feet high with 163 floors.

27 ... Big Ben   Westminster, London      The third tallest freestanding clock tower in the world. i still need to applique the clock face.

44 ... Brandenburg Gate    Berlin, Germany      Formerly a city gate, was refurbished in 2000 with private funds and is now one of the most famous landmarks in Germany.

45 ... Statue of Liberty  Liberty Island, Manhattan, New York   still need to applique points of crown

46 ... Sagrada Familia    Barcelona, Spain    A large incomplete Roman Catholic Church, not expected to be completed until 2026. Begun in 1882, after 40 years, less than a quarter of the project was completed.

46  .... my choice of fabrics weren't the best.....this is how it should look. LOL

49 ... Cathedral de Brasilia    Brasilia, Brazil     The Roman Catholic cathedral for Brasilia and the seat of the Archdiocese of Brasilia. Opened in 1970, it was declared a National Historic and Artistic Monument in 1990.

Still quite a few of these to do.....the piecing is getting really crazy...but i shall persevere.
