100 Days 100 Blocks Sew Along

I am very excited about joining Angie of Gnome Angel for the #100Days100Blocks sew along happening on Instagram! For the sew along, we'll be making the quilt from Tula Pink' s City Sampler book. There are 100 blocks in the book, thus the hashtag #100days100blocks. Today is the official kickoff, so if you want to join the fun, be sure to stop by Angie's blog to get all of the details on how to sew along.

This is my first block for the sew along. I've decided to use my stash of Lizzy House fabrics to bring them to life! My goal is to keep the blocks as close as possible to the color of the blocks in the book. It's going to be interesting because Tula Pink and Lizzy House don't have many of the same color schemes in their collections, but thankfully Lizzy has the Pearl Bracelets basics that fill in most of the gaps.
Block 1 for #100days100blocks.

Block number 2 cut and ready to stitch. This one was fun to pull fabrics for, you can see that I got pretty close to the picture in the book.
Ready for #100days100blocks!

Block 1 in the bottom corner, blocks 2 & 3 are cut, and I've pulled fabric for blocks 4-15! Did I mention I am excited about this sew along? ;) I'm going to try and get as far ahead as possible since baby #2 is due to arrive smack dab in the middle of the sew along.

Starting this sew-along has added another project to my ever growing WIP list but I love the ability to switch between projects. It's helps keep my sewjo active because if I get bored with one project, I can easily switch to another one.

Do you like to work on multiple projects at a time, or do you stick to just one until it's done?

  1. I like having more than one going at a time. I usually have too many lol.

  3. Yay! I love Lizzy House fabrics SO much. I look forward to seeing your progress. I made the Tula City Sampler not long after the book came out with the Sew Sweetness QAL and I was tempted to join this QAL- it's really fun to join in on a well organized QAL.
