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.
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!
