I have a few projects that I consider works in progress rather than UFOs. These typically are long-term fiddly projects that I work on from time to time but am in no hurry to finish them. Recently, I came across the #100Days100Blocks project on Gnome Angel’s website. It is an Instagram Sew Along based on the book Tula Pink’s City Sampler: 100 Modern Quilt Blocks.
When the book came out (in 2013!) I was really excited about it, loved the blocks and pulled a nice little basket of aqua, navy, gray and green fabrics. I even made a few blocks. Since then, the basket has been sitting untouched on my secondary cutting table, aka the junk table.
After browsing through the Instagram feed of everyone’s blocks, I got excited to work on this project again. The blocks are fairly simple and can be made in about 15 minutes so the time commitment each day is minimal. Honestly, the most time consuming part of it is selecting the fabrics.
The group project started on August 17, so I have some catching up to do, but I’m working at it and completed these four blocks yesterday.
It’s fun to see all the block variations each day so I hope I can continue to stay motivated with this project.
