Tula Tuesday: Blocks 56-58

I’m back, and apparently, in a totally purple mood. (Also, I sewed these BEFORE my recent fabric buying trip, but expect to see those fabrics in these blocks ASAP!)


Not that purple is my fave color or anything…

Block #56 is my fave of this batch.

The dotted fabric that looks white is truly a verrrrrrry pale lavender. Instead of the raccoon faces, I used their tales. I’ve already got a few blocks with faces, so tales seemed fun.

Block #57 inspired me to use the exact same fabric scheme as the original.

Wish I’d paid a bit more attention to the tiny print block- I cut it but not from the same bit of pattern.

Block #58 was the anti-triangle block, and I was very grateful for it.

The print row is one of my fave Amy Butler fabrics ever, from the Love line.

So, in my next blocks, I think I might need to take a tiny purple break? Good thing I have those pretty new fabrics!

  1. Cher

    yes, I am a huge purple fan too…you are doing fabulous!

  2. Why would you possibly want to take a break from your favorite color? 😉

    • Excellent question! But I do love all the colors i’m using, so it won’t be a painful break…

  3. I love purple too. I love the bottom block the best.

  4. As always, they look great Sam!

  5. Well I like purple and these blocks look great, but in any case the overall effect is of really nicely mixed colours. I like the little raccoon faces peeping out here and there.

    • the various animals peeking out of different blacks make me smile, too 🙂 Thank you for visiting! -Sam

  6. Oh my goodness, seeing all your blocks together like that is most impressive! It is really interesting to see a thoroughly modern sampler and I find that I love it! Glad you put it on Let’s Bee Social!

    • Honestly, putting them all together like that is the only way I can be certain I’m not overusing one color or fabric- but it does feel good to see my accomplishments, too 🙂 I love the look of samplers with modern fabric choices- a perfect marriage of different eras of quilting. Thank you for visiting! -Sam

  7. Make what you love when you love it, your fabric interest will be a journey by your quilt projects. Enjoy!

    • i find that you can watch my moods change by my fabric choices at different times! If I had made all 100 blocks in one month, this would have been a very different quilt! thank you for visiting!

  8. Pretty, pretty, pretty! The straight lines must be a relief after all those triangle blocks. Your fabric choices are so pretty and I love the peeking raccoon tails!

    • I think the placement of this section of the book right after the triangles was very deliberate, for just that reason! -Sam

  9. Oh those Tula blocks! I got the book out from the library last week in search of the perfect 6½ inch block for my guild’s banner. I think there was too much selection for me to choose just one! Your purple blocks look lovely!

    • I think it would be hard to pick just one of these blocks- some are so simple that alone they don’t look like much. but together, wow! -Sam

  10. Wow! You’ve done a lot! How fun to have so many to use now.

    • Thanks! I’m trying to stick to my 10 blocks/month goal- so far so good- which means I can start assembling the top in December! -Sam
