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.
