A Book Finish! Another Challenge Started.



I started Tula Pink's City Sampler book, "100 Modern Quilt Blocks," 
in November of 2014.  My plan was to make every block from scraps starting from block one and going in order to number one hundred.  


This is what the book looked like back then


and this is what it looks like now with every 6 1/2" block tucked in the pages.

Here are the last 36 blocks:




The blocks aren't together, but I think finishing 100 blocks deserves it's own celebration.

Here are the links to the first blocks:





It was so fun picking out fussy cuts from my scraps. 


One of my friends will certainly recognize this one.


Of course there's a cowboy.  Here in Dodge City you always need one.
Mixing a little vintage with modern for contrast.


Have you heard about the free 365 Challenge?
Everyday this year a new block is posted and at the end of the year you will have made 
The Ultimate Sampler.
The blocks start very simple which makes this challenge a great project for beginners.
The first 3 months will be all about black and grey for me.
I'm using this challenge to use up more scraps. 

100 Blocks and Pixelated Confetti only touched the surface of my scrap problem.


Don't forget to vote for your favorite Confetti quilt for Project Quilting.
Voting will close on Friday, January 15th at 8pm, CST

I've been wanting to do the Tula Pink blocks too. Yours look great. I also love the 365 blocks. That will make a great sampler quilt.

Oh I love that little vintage Marshall Dillon fabric ! Are you doing the 365?

Go ahead. Heap on the guilt! I'm stalled about half way ; ) Congrats on all 100 blocks

I am really liking this,and all the fun color coordination's. I definitely would not have thought to mix these the way you have, it's just fun and fabulous. Can't wait to see it all finished.

Love the confetti quilt. I am amazed at all those matching corners on the 1 1/2 inch squares. One inch finished- WOW. If I tried it, I know it would look more like Scrap Vortex.

Great job finishing the 100 blocks and they are all so cute. I have seen the 365 but I am just watching right now. I love the way the quilt is supposed to look when it is done though.
