I am still a little in holiday mode this week and have been taking things easier – which means no marathon sewing sessions or fabric cutting frenzies. What better to do in this relaxed state, than make a few more blocks for my City Sampler quilt.
Back in May I started making blocks from Tula Pink’s “100 Modern Quilt Blocks“. I loved the slow easy pace of making one block at a time – leisurely cutting the block pieces, then making the block, then moving onto the next. I made a dozen or so blocks in my first run and then put them aside. This week I added a few more blocks to the collection…
Block No 5….
My favorite No. 14..
And the fabulously obnoxious, the “I probably should have thrown in a solid”, No. 18….
Every time I add another block to this sampler it changes. I was playing with some of the blocks on the design wall, just to see how it was coming together and this is what I came up with….
For the finished quilt I think I will be sashing around the blocks as it is the best way to let each blocks breath and shine. So 16 blocks down…only 84 to go!
