100 Days, 100 Blocks?


I tried to resist but was unable to.

This FQ bundle of Pastel Pop by Michael Miller was sitting in my stash waiting around for the right project.


Angie's tempting emails about joining the 100 day QAL kept arriving in my inbox.  You can find this book on Amazon.

After some debate, I'm in!

The blocks seem quite straightforward to construct and a friend told me the hardest part is choosing the fabric!

The trick is remember to IG about it every day - every day for 100 days! (That means May 7 through August 14!)  I'll blog about my latest blocks every 10 blocks or so.   My goal is to make the blocks in batches ahead of time.  Here is block 1 - my test block.



There is going to be a lot of yellow in this quilt!

Have a wonderful day! Patty

  2. I made these 100 blocks a few years ago following the book on my own and just loved every one! Well, except one...it gave me a lot of trouble. It was one of the last ones. Have fun with your blocks!

  12. I'm about half way through the book and blocks. I shall join in on a here and there basis as I don't need to do them all. Hopefully by the end I'll have the top together, though at the moment I have no idea how I'm going to set them xx

  13. That's a pretty ambitious goal, making ahead seems to be a very good idea. Looking forward to seeing this project evolve.
