WIP Wednesday - #100Blocks#100Days

I played along with #100Blocks100Days hosted by Angie @ Gnome Angel on Instagram.  You can get the details here.  We made all 100 of the 6.5-inch blocks in Tula Pink's book 100 Modern Quilt Blocks.

I successfully made each block and posted for 100 days on Instagram.

My first layout was each block in the order it was made.  I thought about re-organizing by colour, or some other sensible method.  But I didn't have a plan when I made the blocks -- I was using my scrap pile -- so there is no coordination of fabrics or colours.  So it got too complicated trying to figure out a layout for 100 blocks, so I decided to leave them as is.  Less stress and headache.


Here are a few of my favourite blocks.







The blocks are now all pieced together.  Going for a simple all over free motion stipple -- the focus and goal is to finish projects.

  1. It is awesome Anja! Love all the colors. It was fun seeing all the different color combos every day on instagram. I missed day one (by a day) but managed to sew and post the other 99 blocks on the day. Fun and a good way to start my days :)

  7. IT's fabulous. I've done just over 60 of the blocks and it's gone back on my UFO pile. I really need to finish it after seeing the great quilt you've made

  9. I think it looks wonderful just the way it is! Good decision on your part. :) Now that takes some dedication and discipline. I don't think I could do that. Great finish, Anja!

  12. I really enjoyed watching these blocks over the last 100 day. 2017 will not be the same without them. This will be a great quilt when these blocks are all put together.

  13. Seeing all those blocks together and knowing that you pieced them in 100 days, blows my mind. That was a crazy amount of work when you think about it. I'm all about the finishing of quilts this year. Can't wait to celebrate with you when you finish!
