Tula Pink City Sampler Quilt Top Complete!

The top is assembled!  With all the beautiful Tula City Sampler blocks appearing on Instagram daily, I decided it was time to woman-up and assemble MY beautiful blocks into a quilt top.  In case you want to see each one, here are the previous blog posts starting in February 2014 (!!):

Yes, it really was time to move this project forward!  I fell in love with Tula's fabric making these blocks.  Selecting the right setting was critical and I decided to go with one right from the book.  It was very slow going with lots of pieces and pinning but I couldn't be happier.

It was a lovely autumn day for quilt photographs.

I played with the block placement for a very long time!  The blocks lived on my design wall for months.  As noted in the blog posts, I built the blocks without a specific color plan in mind.  Each block was lovingly constructed as I allowed her artwork to inspire the fabric choices.  This meant a layout with a defined color scheme was not going to happen.

Next I have to baste this very large quilt! Then onto quilting! Just think how many pictures will be in the post when I finish this quilt! Apologies in advance!
