A day late but here are some of my blocks for the 100 Days 100 Blocks sew along happening on Instagram!
I decided to make two sets. The first is a color block set, it has also turned out to be a fussy cut collection. Not sure how much longer I can find fussy cuts in my stash but the challenge is pretty fun. The plan ( I use that word loosely) is to have 10 blocks in each of the colors in my stash for the full quilt.
I am learning as I go that I have a TON of pink in my stash and also purple. The red in my stash is lacking and gray is almost non existent. It is interesting to see what I have and what I do not have. I have so much more of colors that are not my favorites.
The second set is made completely from garments, mostly men's button down shirts, that I have purchased from the thrift store or found around the house. This set also has an added personal challenge. I have been making some of the blocks with added log cabins, made fabric or other techniques to add an element of surprise and a level of difficulty for me.
I enjoy shaking things up and making them my own.
This adventure has been great for sparking creativity! It is also a fantastic skill builder. I am learning so much as I sew along!
What are you working on this week?
