We are eight weeks into the Quilting the Countdown 100 day project. There are 36 days left until QuiltCon. I'm spending at least 15 minutes a day working on my Patchwork City blocks.

I finished one blocks this week. This brought me to 56 out of 75 blocks complete. Slow progress is still progress. And I'm apparently off my game with photography, because I just realized that I didn't even take a picture of that block. Whoops! I'll share it on IG this week and in next week's update post here on the blog. I did a fair amount of cutting this week, so I have numerous blocks to choose from when I sit down to the machine this week. The progress shots include Kona Wasabi and Kona Blue Grass.

Thanks for visiting!

We are eight weeks into the Quilting the Countdown 100 day project. There are 43 days left until QuiltCon. I'm spending at least 15 minutes a day working on my Patchwork City blocks.

I finished three blocks this week. This brought me to 55 out of 75 blocks complete. It was a little slower going than I thought it would be since 4 of the 6 blocks in the new colors have a lot of template pieces. The finished blocks shown feature Kona Tomato, Kona Papaya, and Kona Wasabi.

There's been lots of fabric selection and some cutting in addition to these finishes. I paper pieced the units below that will go together into the 5" x 14" papaya block.

In case you didn't see it, my Show Me Something linkup post went up this week. I hope you'll link up a finished project that meets this month's theme. Happy quilting!

We are seven weeks into the Quilting the Countdown 100 day project. There are 50 days left until QuiltCon. I'm spending at least 15 minutes a day working on my Patchwork City blocks.

I finished two blocks this week. This brought me to 52 out of 75 blocks complete. (I think I'm on track to finish all the blocks by the end of the 100 Day Project.) The finished blocks shown feature Kona Tomato.

This is the only black and white print that I'm using that includes another color. I'm afraid I'll regret it, but I'm going for it.

I started by cutting out all my pieces for there three Tomato blocks, one on each fast food tray.

My first finished block this week, and bits of another block. I often work on multiple blocks (or multiple projects) at the same time. More chain piecing and fewer trips to the ironing board.

Second finished Tomato block.

Cutting the fussy template pieces (including making the butcher paper templates) takes some time.

And some nights I don't feel like sewing, so I start choosing fabrics for the next sets of blocks. Kona Papaya and Kona Wasabi are in the queue.

Last night I realized that I wasn't pleased with the blender fabrics from my block of the month for the Wasabi blocks (first photo above). I was surprised to find multiple viable options in my stash. I think I'll use the bottom three in the second photo since the top fabric I pulled is a little too dark.

So I may be working on three different colors this week, to finish the last Tomato block and dive into some of the Papaya and Wasabi blocks. And then I have that one block I've had cut out for seven weeks that I've been avoiding. Maybe I'll work on that one too.

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