It’s time for the second installment of Tula Tuesday. This week, I worked my way through blocks 3, 4, 5 and 6 (pictured in numerical order.) 5 and 6 were super duper fast- in fact, I pieced 6 while Annie was pinning her pillowcase!
I actually took #3 apart once. I had a green fabric in the corner squares, and I hated it. So I replaced the green with the blue Pearl Bracelets, and it was all better.
Number 4 features two of my favorite fabrics from Parisville.
Number five is back to purples, and includes more of that Parisville. (I love how I don’t notice the threads all over my blocks until AFTER I take the photos!)
And number six has even more Parisville- along with the green Tula that I kicked out of #3…
Here’s everything so far…
This upcoming week, I may not get more than #7, or maybe #7 and #8, done. There are 20 1×1 squares in block #7! That will require some attention paying and precision piecing- which are both totally my strengths. NOT.
Meanwhile, I’ve got a question for you guys. Since I posted last week’s blocks, I’ve heard from several folks who are part way through or just starting their own City Samplers. Since the official QAL is over, and the prizes have been awarded (and, if you haven’t checked out the results, what are you waiting for?), I wondered if anyone would be interested in linking up their progress throughout the year? I was thinking every Tuesday, or maybe just one Tuesday per month? It would be so much fun to see what everyone is up to, and to encourage one another along the way. You could be doing all 100, or just your faves… anything goes! Anyone up for it?
