City Sampler Progress in October

I'm Linking up with Michelle over at Crayon Box Quilt Studio to show my progress with the Tula Pink City Sampler. 

In the last 2 months I have been able to complete 15 blocks (which you can see here and here) and I wanted to get all 70 blocks completed before Stash Bash so that I could assemble them while i was there. I am leaving for retreat today, so -- How did I do? 

Not well -- Truth of the matter is that I didn't complete any new blocks. I spent some time cutting blocks and have about 20 ready for sewing but with all the other projects I needed to get done this just didn't happen. 

My book is a bulging bundle of promise right now and these blocks will be good to whip together when I need little successes in between other projects.
I had hoped to get more blocks cut so that the big box of fabric would not need to go with me but I'm still undecided as to whether it will or not -- and if it does it might stay in the car until it's needed. 

This post was supposed to have gone up 10/15 but for some reason my scheduling got messed up and it didn't post so I'll add to it with the things that I was able to accomplish at Stash Bash. 

#16: block 1 
#17: block 3
#18: block 12
#19: block 18
#20: block 30

#21: block 32
#22: block 33
#23: block 35
#24: block 46
#25: block 48
#26: block 58
#27: block 71
#28: block 77
#29: block 91
#30: block 99
#31: block 100
#32: block 24

My big box of fabrics did not go with me so I was limited in what I could complete, I had several other blocks that I was able to start but not complete (counting errors). I'm pretty happy to bring my total from 15 to 32 in just one weekend. I'm nearly to the half way point with my blocks and hope to make it to at least 50 before the next link up.  

Head on over and see Michelle and all the other wonderful ladies that are linking up to motivate one another on completing this city sampler journey. 

Happy Quilting Everyone.

  1. You made excellent progress at the retreat!! I tend to socialize so much that I don't accomplish as much as I'd like. Your blocks are lovely!

  2. Just found your blog and am in love with Tula Pink! Thanks for the great pics of your wonderful blocks! WOW! I am going to have to get that Modern Block book! I'm a sucker for a fun sampler!!!

  3. I like them all and yeah to you for getting more done. I finished #4 and 5 but that is all. Hopefully I can get a few made today.
