Tula Tuesday: Blocks 11 and 12 and my first Linkup!

It’s the first Tuesday in March… and that means… today is the first Tula Tuesday linkup! Please join in- link to any post of your own containing City Sampler related content. (Normally I’d ask that your post be from the last week, but since we’re just getting started, no time constraints this time…) The Linky and the rules are at the bottom of this post.


This week was all about purple. Or perhaps even, Radiant Orchid? I think next week is going to be grays and blues…

Block #11 was quick, and is all Tula fabrics.

Block #12 had more pieces, and I really liked the little offset cross. I was worried about using the pearl bracelets as the background fabric (how would it look chopped up?) But I do think it worked. I really like this block a lot!

But of course I’m still second guessing myself and wondering if the background should have been solid, or at least, more subtly patterned… Meanwhile, here’s my progress to date: blocks 1-12.

blocks 1-12

And now for the linkup! Here’s all the details in depth, but also a quick look at the rules:

  1. Please only link to your own posts containing City Sampler related content.
  2. Please link to the actual post and not your homepage.
  3. Please link back here in either the body of your post or in your sidebar/wherever you typically show off linkup buttons.
  4. Please visit and comment on other links. Don’t just post and run… that’s no fun for anyone.

(This is my first time hosting…be kind! And please let me know ASAP if there are any problems with the linky tool. I’m so looking forward to seeing your blocks!)

    • Thanks for being my first linker! I really do love #12… and I’m also excited to be nearing the end of the cross section. 4 more cross blocks to go… -Sam

    Your blocks look great. I linked up but I believe you’ve seen them already. Hoping for new ones to be done for the next link party.
