#TulaPinkFabric

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?

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……

City Sampler Quilt Blocks 1 thru 10

My talented friend inspired me to join in the #100Blocks100Days quilt block challenge.  While she does absolutely beautiful work with quilts, I am a beginner with quilts.  But with her encouragement, and my desire to have lovely quilts in my house like hers, I started the 100 Modern Quilt Blocks to make Tula Pink’s City Sampler Quilt.

I pulled Tula Pink’s Chipper fabrics, mixed with a few of her other collections, and a fat quarter bundle of her True Colors.  Using these fabrics, I mixed and matched to make such unique quilt blocks – and with Tricia’s continued encouragement, plus seeing her beautiful blocks posted every day, I am slowly catching up with the #100Blocks100Days challenge.

The #100Blocks100Days challenge is hosted by Gnome Angel HERE.  It is run on Instagram, which is a new medium for me, so I will post my blocks there and also here on my blog.

See my friend Tricia’s amazing work on her Instagram at MyRainyDaysDesign and on her Etsy site HERE.

And now, here are my first 10 blocks…
