A quick follow up to the post MSQC Quilt Retreat Part I: What I Worked On.
At the quilt retreat I attended a couple weeks ago, I completed the first 20 blocks for the Tula Pink’s City Sampler 100 Modern Quilt Blocks quilt:
Well last weekend, I did not want to lose the momentum on working towards completing the 100 blocks for the sampler quilt, so I made 10 more blocks:
This time I didn’t make the pieces for each block into little packets like I did for the retreat:
But I did pre-cut several blocks at a time before taking the pieces for 3 – 4 blocks to my sewing machine to piece together.
I had so much fun listening to music and sewing the next 10 blocks in the series.
I mainly worked from a pile of coordinated scraps I bought years ago from the Stitchin’ Post quilt shop in Sisters, Oregon:
It is fun to just riffle through the pile, coordinating fabrics for each block.
I thought about getting 10 more done, but it seems 10 at a time is enough in one sitting!
Here are the 30 blocks I’ve pieced to date up on my design wall – only 70 more to go!
To close this post here is a sweet card I came across that I sent recently to a friend. Hope it gives you are smile like it gave me:
