Tula Tuesday: 41-44

School’s only been out for a week, and I’m already behind on blogging! Ooops… I took an unintended week off from the blog because, well, summer. Baseball games for Henry, Dumb Friends League Camp for Annie, a new cat for my mom, a 5 day weekend for me, and oh yeah, my husband’s birthday in the middle of it all!

I didn’t have any Tula progress last week as I was racing to complete that special HST quilt- and it was mailed off over the weekend, so I’m back.

Blocks 41-44- more triangles. Ugh. If I ever want to be reminded that I am NOT an accurate piecer, these blocks should do it…

Block 41 was an excuse to use that wonderful Lizzy House Constellations print I finally found a few weeks ago. I threw in a shot cotton and my AMH feature fabric, and, ta-da. I really like this one.

Block 43 and I had issues. This is the 2nd one I made. My first version was wonderful, I loved the fabrics, and then, I walked across the room. And the chevrons totally blended into one another and looked like a blob. Boo. Back to the drawing board (aka stash) and I started again with MUCH greater value differences. I’m much happier with take 2.

Block 44: simple and sweet, and makes me smile. Nuff said.

So here’s what I’ve got done to date:

Not bad. I am so close to the halfway point that I can almost taste it! Also, nearly as close to the end of the triangle section. And THAT will be cause for a par-tay!

Do you have any Tula projects to share? If so, link up below…

    • Thank you 🙂 I think I will find some sad surprises in my piecing when I go to assemble the top. Hopefully everything will be near enough to 6.5” inches at the end!

  5. Nice progress! Are you planning to assemble the quilt in order or mixing the blocks up?

    Your piecing looks pretty great to me! Lovely colours too 🙂

  7. I’ve been wondering what had happened to you. The blocks look great!

    • I seem to not be finding computer time now that summer has hit… Hence the comment replying DAYS late 😦 Still finding sewing time, just not typing time… -Sam

      • I’ve been having a little of the same problem. Well, actually, not time for either at this precise moment as I’m cleaning out the spare room to make a sewing studio. Was going to wait until we got our own place (hopefully in the fall) but finally cracked it at having three by five feet of space in which to quilt, and no way to move around the table. Of course it’s become a giant hassle, but I’ll explain it all in a blog post once I’m done.

  8. the more blocks being added the more and more I like the colour scheme!
