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!


  1. Audrey, these look amazing! And your over halfway!! Woohoo!! By this point I'm usually sick of it :-) It's going to look fabulous.
    E xx

  2. LOVE your blocks! The Sisters' Ten BOM is too big of a commitment for me at this point, and that's much less than the Tula blocks ;) Anyway, I'm also anxious for that last blocks. I'm working on TWO BOM quilts so I want to put them together!!


Thanks for leaving me a note! You've made my day!
