I Call It My RK Frappe

I have been playing along with the #100days100blocks sew-along on Instagram that kicked off on August 17th. So far I have made every required post! It was tough this weekend since we were camping and had hit-&-miss coverage. 

When I joined the AugustaMQG they were already mid-book in the City Sampler and I chose not to participate at the time. I was a bit envious when they would pull out their books for show & tell.

Now, I have my ever-growing book! I had my Tula Pink City Sampler 100 Modern Quilt Blocks book coil-bound at Office Max before I started. I requested the largest coil and so far it seems to be holding up to the growing pudge of blocks.

I have been working ahead and I move these post-it tabs as I go. They keep me on track with the major milestones of how far I have...pulled fabric, cut blocks and sewn blocks. It has been a very good system. 

I also glue 1/2" by 1" fabric swatches in my book to remind me of the fabric placement. This is especially helpful since I am not using Tula fabrics. 

My fabrics are a combo of Robert Kaufman products that consist of my large stash from Carolyn Friedlander accented with my tiny Elizabeth Hartman and Karen Lewis collections. For my solids I am using exclusively Kona Cottons.

All this fun has been organized by Angie, known as the Gnome Angel and you can find more information on her blog HERE. She has a full page of FAQs and links to shops where you can buy your own copy of the book. There are a lot of great sponsors too! 

Jump on Instagram and do a search for #100days100blocks and see what all the fun is about!

I see a lot of late comers to the fun every day so don't think it is too late to jump in!

Thanks for visiting!
