I need a new WIP, like I need a hole in the head, yet I have decided to try and complete the #100Days100Blocks quilt along currently being hosted by GnomeAngel and friends. Using the Tula Pink City Sampler book, which I have had for about three years, we make one block a day until we have completed the 100 blocks. It started on 17 August and will finish on 24 November. Of course I have had to catch up on blocks 1-5, so there has been a mammoth sewing effort this weekend. As I have not officially registered on the Instagram based quilt along, I will be updating my blocks here and on my Flickr page.
I think the hardest thing is picking the fabrics/colour palette for each block. As I do not have a huge stash of Tula Pink fabrics, I have decicded to go with the Freespirit Designers as my starting point, most of their designers that I like - Amy Butler, Tula Pink, Anna Maria Horner, Denyse Schmidt and Joel Dewberry have colour palettes that work beautifully together. So hopefully my quilt blocks will have some sort of cohesion to them when I have finished. Very hard to see at this point. I am trying to use fabrics /scraps already in my stash.
4 down, 96 to go. I suspect that there may be a sewing binge every few of days to catch up.
