I just couldn’t resist any longer! All the instagram pictures under the hashtag #100days100blocks were getting to me and I had to join in the quilt along fun of the 100 blocks in Tula Pink’s City Sampler book!
This particular quilt along is being run by gnomeangel and it’s been so much fun seeing what other folks are doing with their blocks and what fabrics they are selecting. There are also sponsors with prizes to be won! Doesn’t get much better than that, eh?
I’m going an entirely different direction than I did with my first City Sampler quilt (do you remember that one? You can see it HERE if you missed it). I’m using mostly an indigo/mustard color palette.
I purchased some great indigo dyed fabric (and one mustard hand-dyed too) from Jennifer Falkowski during the summer and I had been itching to use them! They are just too gorgeous to let sit in my piles of fabric for too long!
Here are my first 25 blocks all on my design wall. I am just loving where this is heading. I didn’t have enough of the dyed fabric from Jennifer to make a whole quilt so I am mixing in other indigo/blue/mustardy fabrics from my stash to add into the quilt. One of my favorite quotes from my mother-in-law is “Why use five fabrics when you could use 50?” SO TRUE!
Instagram accounts to watch!
GnomeAngel: well … not only is she the organizer of this great challenge – her blocks are pretty fabulous too! She’s using all Lizzy House fabrics!
GoGoKim: she’s actually doing two sets of 100 blocks … and one of those sets is all made out of clothing!
LauraPlus3and1 – her 18th block is one of the most amazing fussy cut blocks I’ve EVER seen!!!!
