100 Day Project: Week 3 Update

We are three weeks into Quilting the Countdown 100 day project. There are 78 days left until QuiltCon. I'm spending at least 15 minutes a day working on my Patchwork City blocks.

I finished 2 blocks this week, bringing me to 34 out of 75 blocks complete. The blocks shown feature Kona Clover and Punch (I think).

I started the week with cutting out the majority of the six blocks in these two colors. These two sections will actually stack vertically in the finished block.

When I'm piecing I like to chain piece... I don't break thread between sewing units. I just take a couple stitches and then start the next seam. It saves time and thread. I also work on multiple blocks at a time, so I sew a bunch of seams, then I go to the ironing board to press them and get ready for the next round.

I finished two 8" blocks this week.

I ended the week with more components stitched together for the coming blocks. My next update should have four more finished blocks. ;-) Then I get to pick some new colors to work on!

 

Hop over to see what I did in week 1 and week 2.

Cassandra is the organizer of Quilting the Countdown (#quiltingthecountdown on Instagram).

Let me know if you're participating. I'd love to see what you're making.

      Thank you, Betty. It feels really good to be making progress on an old project. I never fell out of love with it, I just moved on to other things and never have enough time to work on them all! :-)
