City Sampler Quilt Blocks 11 thru 15

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?

The #100Blocks100Days challenge is hosted by Gnome Angel HERE.  It is run on Instagram, so I will post my blocks there and also here on my blog.  You can see my first 10 blocks HERE.

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……
