100 Blocks in 100 Days: Week 1

Last Fall I watched as hundreds of quilters participated in the Tula Pink City Sampler quilt along hosted on Instagram by Angie of Gnome Angel. Among others, I drooled over my friend Liz's blocks. So, when Angie was gearing up for another round, I knew I had to dive in. I knew I wanted to use my Tula Pink fabric stash. And I knew this quilt will be for me. I started by choosing a palette and pulled my Tula prints and Kona solids that were mainly green, blue or purple (with hints of pink).

Starting on May 7, participants started making one 6" block a day... we'll post the last block in the book on August 14. Participants are allowed to work ahead, but to be eligible for prizes we must post each block on the correct day (in our own time zone). The first couple weeks of blocks are all cross blocks. I'm really enjoying working with the Tula fabric and fussy cutting the cute critters. Here are my first seven blocks.

See all the blocks I've made on Instagram at #sgq100blocks and check out everyone's blocks at #100days100blocks2017.

Check out my week 2 blocks.

      Thank you, Yvonne! I'm hoping to start working on adding my borders to my blocks so I'll be able to put it together fairly quickly at the end of the project. :-)

  1. I have a little collection of Tula fabrics, from a variety of her ranges. So far I have just admired, stroked and put back in the drawer. These blocks look great, will come together very well

      That's pretty much been my M.O. until this project. I've used a little here and there, particularly from the True Colors line, but it's fun to be diving into all of it.

    How beautiful. I love your choice of fabrics. I am going to participate in 2018. Are the Tula Pink fabrics you used still available to purchase?
    Thank you
    Diane

      Thank you so much, Diane. You'll have a great time participating!! My Tula stash has a bunch of older fabrics in it that are now out of print, but this project could workweek using current lines, or even picking just one line and supplementing with solids or mode grunge prints. So many options!
