#Sewing Challenge

City Sampler Quilt Blocks 16-35

And the rectangle Quilt Blocks are complete! on the #100Blocks100Days quilt block challenge to make Tula Pink’s City Sampler Quilt.  I am using Tula Pink’s Chipper fabrics, mixed with a few of her other collections, including True Colors.  Do you see another Elizabeth in there?

The #100Blocks100Days challenge is hosted by Gnome Angel HERE.  It is run on Instagram, so I post my blocks there and also here on my blog.  You can see my first blocks, 1-15 Crosses, HERE & HERE.

My rectangle blocks turned out even better than my previous set, the crosses.  The fabric colors are fun to work with, and I am improving my quilt piecing skills with every block.  I also find that I like to work in an assembly line.  I work several blocks at a time.  I piece & pin, then I stitch, then I press, then I piece & pin again, and so on.  The best part is, I finish several blocks at once and get to hang them on my wall.

Here are the rectangles….. which one is your favorite?
