100 Day Project: Week 5 Update

We are five weeks into Quilting the Countdown 100 day project. There are 63 days left until QuiltCon. I'm spending at least 15 minutes a day working on my Patchwork City blocks (a project I started in 2015!)

I finished 9 blocks this week. Nine! This brought me to 47 out of 75 blocks complete! The finished blocks shown feature Kona Bluegrass, Coral, and Grellow.

I've been avoiding this block, but it's the only one I have (mostly) cut out. I've already finished the other two in this color.

And the next color to cut out is my Kona Charcoal blocks. I use sharpie to label the names of the colors on the selvage edge of my solids. Since most of my solids are Kona I just put the color name on those, and on other brands I include the brand name and color.

I'm getting excited to see all my blocks together. I also want to figure out what fabric I'm using for the sashing so I can start putting the trios of blocks together. The block of the month came with a dark grey Essex linen, but when I pre-washed it... it became a crumpled mess and I vowed not to use it for this project. Right now I'm leaning toward a light grey Kona solid.

 

I'm participating in Cheryl's 31-Day Blog Writing Challenge.

      Great minds! Yes. I'm surprised how fast the blocks are coming together. It's almost sad how long this project has waited for me. Thanks for visiting, Anja.
