Look… more progress on the #100Blocks100Days quilt block challenge. Blocks 1-15 Crosses are complete of the 100 Modern Quilt Blocks to make Tula Pink’s City Sampler Quilt. These are in Tula Pink’s Chipper fabrics, mixed with a few of her other collections, and True Colors collection. Do you see Elizabeth in there?
As I work more quilt blocks, I can tell that my skills are improving. And I am figuring out what works best for me. For example, the ironing board that I use for garments doesn’t work as well for quilt blocks. So, I pulled out my small portable board that has very little cushioning in the pad, and it works to press out the block seams MUCH better. I also found out that less pins are better. I am an admitted pinner – I will pin a seam excessively and then I sew over pins. Yep. I’m one of those people. Well, on garments, sure this works, but on quilt blocks, it doesn’t work. I am only pinning when I need to match a seam between two pieces. Otherwise, I’m going commando with the pins.
With blocks 11-15 complete, I have completed the first group called Crosses in Tula Pink’s book……
And here is one last picture of all the Crosses Block.
