Tula Tuesday: Blocks 7 and 8

(Also known as the blocks with the teeny tiny squares…)


I only have 2 blocks to show you because I’ve been busy basting my skull quilt, but more on that later. Like, tomorrow…

Blocks 7 and 8 both contain a multitude of teensy squares. I’m sure these are less square than the ones that came before…so much room for accuracy to be lost with those tiny bits.

Block 7 is very, very green, with that dowry print I love so much in the corners.

Block 8 incorporates some more Tula, from the Nightshade line. I’m a bit worried the colors of the print are so much flatter than the other blocks so far, but I do love that fabric so very very much. I also used that brand new houndstooth I just showed in in Sunday Stash.

From my post last week, it sounds like some of you WOULD be interested in taking part in a Tula linky party. Here’s my plan: start Tuesday, March 4th. I’ll host the link up- if anyone out there is great at button making, I’d love help! Folks will be welcome to post any Tula city sampler progress they have made, and of course, will be encouraged to visit and comment on others’ posts. Of course, we all want to see what everyone else is up to, so that should be easy! I’ll leave the linkup open through the week, and we’ll start the whole thing over the next week.

Sound good?

If so, help me spread the word- and I’ll try to get a button ready ASAP to help with that.

Meanwhile, let’s end with my progress to date… 2 more blocks and I’ll be done for February.

    Great looking blocks! I like the sound of a city sampler party 🙂

  5. I am stalled at block 55! Linky party sounds good maybe that will get me going. Your blocks look great!

    • I should be at 55 by June 🙂 My plan is 10/month from now through November Id love it if youd link up with us- its so much fun to see the different ways the blocks look with different fabric choices

      Thanks for coming by!


  6. Loving the color scheme you are using! Your blocks are all very lovely–looking forward to seeing more of them! 🙂

  7. oooh, it does sound good… I have the book, I have the scraps… I just need to get started!


    • It totally does become addictive!! Im going to have trouble sticking to my only 10/month schedule! Thanks for coming by! -Samantha

      • Wishing you luck on completing your goal…not sure what I will do with my blocks. I am nearing 74 and I want to try so many new things, and with some physical limitations, I am thinking I’ll do something other than a full Dear Jane.

      • Thank you for the good wishes! I hope that you are able to complete your blocks without too much difficulty. Thank you for visiting 🙂
