100 Modern Quilt Blocks: Month 8

 

I’m done! I’m done! I’m done! (Almost…)

 

I finished the last 20 blocks in my Tula Pink‘s City Sampler: 100 Modern Quilt Blocks!  quilt! I now have 100 blocks in 5 different color ways: brown, teal, blue, light green, and dark green. You can see my dark greens above. (See my previous posts for my progress and tips for choosing color and patterns.)

 

I’m not going to lie. I wasn’t very careful with these last 20 blocks. I was so excited to finish and a little short on free time to sew, so I pulled a few late nights to work on them. There’s two blocks in the set above that don’t look like the ones in the book, because I sewed the parts together wrong. I could definitely go back and redo them, but I think it’s all part of the charm of a sampler quilt. It will be a little reminder to me about the process of making this quilt (and something that no one else will notice).

 

I’m going to let this one sit for awhile, so I can think about the design and what color sashing I want (post any suggestions you have in the comments!).

 

Buy Tula’s book here and play along with us!

 

Happy quilting,
