WIP Wednesday 100 Modern Blocks

I was asked how many quilts I have in progress currently the other day and I honestly could not answer.  There seem to be many sew along quilts or I just happen to like that block quilts going on in the studio at the moment.  I suppose there needs to be an intervention at some point to organize what is currently happening to have more direction going forward...or not!

The best news is that I am over half way completed with not one but TWO of the quilts from Tula Pink's City Sampler 100 Modern Blocks!

The blocks are in the 60's and going forward will be a breeze barring the kids bringing any sort of kiddie crud home from school.  **looking for wood to knock**

The first set is the fussy cut set.  I am trying to make 100 completely different blocks.  So far so good!

I have had other sewing projects, I stared painting the TV room and so this week I am a little behind in my up cycled garment blocks!  I will get caught back up soon!

Here a a photo of a group of a few of them together!  There are over 60 now!  All of the blocks in this set are thrifted, gifted or found garments of all different kinds!  I started out using only men's cotton shirts but there is now every kind of fabric with the exception of knits.

At this point I am open for any and everything!

This one is special because all of the fabric ( except for the red block) came from Julie from Procrasticraft! She sent these all the way from Australia for me to use in the up cycled garments quilt! Thank you Jules!!!!!

I piece all of my blocks using Aurifil 50wt thread.  For perfect seams and a clean machine I always grab my Aurifil!

If you want to see more of my blocks as they happen, you can visit my gogokim Instagram feed!
