Tula Tuesday: Blocks 71-75

This weekend I played catch-up!


5 more blocks down, and I’m 3/4 of the way done with the entire book! Hopefully by this weekend I can finish through 80, and get myself back on my 10/month schedule.

Meanwhile, here’s a brief view of my progress.

Block 71: raccoons!

Block 72: polk dots and neons…

Block 73: turquoise and squirrel!

Block 74: grey and the floral green that photographs way more yellow than it really is.

Block 75: pinks and my fave focus fabric yet again.

I am supremely pleased to be able to report that I am feeling better. For real! I had the energy to do fun things with my family- like the Botanic Gardens Corn Maze and a pre season NHL game. In fact, on Sunday afternoon I started feeling achy, and realized I had gone the entire day with NO ibuprofen until 3pm! And I hadn’t missed it. This is very very exciting. I feel like I am slowly reclaiming my life. If only I felt that way about my house.

As always, here’s my progress to date. Next week I’ll have to start a new collage!

Meanwhile, I’d love to see any Tula progress you’ve made. Link up below.

And I’ll be linking up at Sew Cute Tuesday, WIP Wednesday, and Let’s Bee Social. Hope to see you there!

  1. The racoon and squirrel fabrics are killing me! Love them.

  2. I’m so pleased that you’re feeling better! By the way, that squirrel is my favorite fussy cut ever.

  3. Glad to hear you’re feeling so much better and are back at the quilting. Your blocks look good (and quilting is much more fun than sorting the house!)

  4. I am working on a rail fence quilt using Tula Pink Fox Field this week. I am now intrigued about making a Tula City Sampler! Looks great!

  5. Love those racoons and squirrels! It’s looking great.

  6. What fun blocks! I especially like the open ended one.

  7. Lots of nice blocks made this week! I especially like 71 (He’s peeking!) and 73.

    Yea for Tula! I’ve got a bunch of them done too. I think they are so fun because there are so many fabric options that can make each block look totally different I love the collage you have made of your squares online 🙂

    How did I not know about this, I love Tula! Your fussy cut squirrel is adorable

  11. I love seeing your sampler grow!

  12. So love seeing these blocks. Can’t wait to see them all together.

    • Thanks, Cath 🙂 I’m starting to mull over potential layouts since I’m getting so close to the end, and I admit, I’m overwhelmed!!

        I agree – I’m thinking December to start it as I will have finished other projects by then. BTW, thank you for your visit to my blog. That is how I found yours.

      • It’s always great to make new blog friends! Can you re-send me your blog address? It’s not showing up in the comment here 😦
