Tula Pink Blocks 1-51.
I tossed around the idea of weekly updates of my block progress in Tula Pink's City Sampler, but since I'm only making three a week, that seemed like a lot of posts of little blocks. However, today I hit the #51 mark, and it seemed a good a time as any to lay them all out and see all those pretties making friends with each other. As you can see, I've got a big stack, and it's only getting bigger!
I really don't know what to say, Friends. I've been working on these since May, and it's been a lot of work. I'm still totally excited to work on them, which is good, but 51 blocks is time consuming no matter how you slice it. (And I have 49 blocks left, eep!)
I am following the color progression in the book in hopes of getting a lovely rainbow. Some of my blocks use the fabrics Tula has utilized, and some do not. I wonder if it has to do with my mood on the day of creation? In addition to various solids, quilting cottons, shot cottons, and even a bit of linen blend, I have used ten of Tula's twelve collections. My Acacia shipped this morning--woop woop!--and I'm beginning to believe Neptune is a made up collection that doesn't really exist, so maybe I should say I've used 10 of Tula's eleven real collections?
In other BOM/QAL news, I've cut the fabric for my final Sisters' 10 BOM blocks*, and I even have the HSTs pieced. I just need to find time to slap those bad boys together, and OMG, I will be done. I can't wait to have those blocks done, especially since I hope to have that quilt done for Mr. Audrey for Christmas.
How are your Tula/Sisters' 10 blocks progressing?
*I may have skipped ahead, looked at the picture, and figured out how to piece it on my own. I'm really really impatient to have those blocks done!
