    Almost Finished!

    I did the Tula Pink 100 Block City Sampler last year (finished the blocks in Sept) as a BOM at one of the LQS. We were able to use our own fabrics, doing 8 blocks a month plus the 4 additional (12 x 8 = 96 + 4 = 100). It was a lot of fun. As part of it, Tula has you name your own blocks.

    Tula Pink had several layouts in the book and I liked the Trellis (lap size and only used 64 blocks), but wanted a King size for our bed. Therefore, I had to recalculate the size and I was able to use all 100 blocks (final size: 108" x 108"). As you can see, I had trouble fitting it the frame, so a couple of blocks look like they were cut off.

    I also used a double batt (Wool and Bamboo), which made it a little thicker and I forgot to adjust the binding accordingly, so I still have to finish the binding (it's on, but needs to be sewn down). I am also entering in my guild's quilt show in March.

    I never thought about it that way, but you are right.

    Thanks for all the nice comments, everyone!

    Very pretty, the blocks almost jump off the background.
    Your fabric selection really is spot on.

    How lovely! I have looked at Tula Pink's book and it is hard to imagine that you can make a quilt of such complexity and beauty from those simple blocks. Your quilt is an inspiration.
