100 blocks made and shared through Instagram in 100 days.

75 blocks all set together without sashing.  Yellows, grays, whites and elephants blending together.

Asymmetrically framed with a slate gray solid and backed with flannel.  Stitched with organic wavy lines.  The binding is slate gray except for a 18'' section (upper right) which is bound in scraps of yellow.

Looks perfect on my daughter's bed in her newly painted room.

(Although quilts on her bed rarely look this neat and are usually twisted around and pushed aside after she wakes in the morning.)

We took the quilt for a photo shoot at our neighborhood playground - a place she hadn't been too since she was ten.

For my quilt, I used this FQ bundle of Pastel Pop by Michael Miller which was sitting in my stash. 

Read more about the QAL here and follow along on Instagram with #100Days100Blocks2017.  You can find the 100 Modern Quilt Blocks book on Amazon.

I'll be linking up my quilt Playful with  Freemotion by the River,   WIP Wednesday's,  Let's Bee SocialMidweek Makers.  Needle and Thread Thursdays, Finish it Up Friday and Finished or Not Friday.

Have a wonderful day! Patty


  1. It looks great! Love the colors.

  2. You know, I never thought about what a quilt like this would look like on a bed. It is really like the way it looks half and half! Now I want one! Do you know I had 76 of the 100 Modern Quilt Blocks made when the flood came and washed them away......haven't seen them since! LOL

  3. Love how you've set it. I think I might be setting mine roughly the same now. I stopped making the blocks on 60 something as I couldn't think how I was going to put it together. Now I know I'll get them finished. Thank you

  4. I love how it came together! Do you have plans for the other 25 blocks or did I just miss that in the Post?

  5. Well done! I don't think I could get into my sewing room 100 days in a row - though I WANT to! The quilt looks wonderful on your daughter's bed, and I personally think the purple window trim really sets it off!

  6. Wow! The quilt looks terrific.

  7. I got some scraps of this fabric at a destash sale on Saturday. Nice big chunks, but not enough to make a quilt, though.

  8. Awesome! Love how you set the blocks.


Thanks for visiting Elm Street Quilts. Looking forward to hearing from you!
