100 Day Project Update - 53 Days to Quiltcon Together

Back on Tuesday, November 10, Cassandra kicked off the 100 days to QuiltCon countdown.

I decided to join in and make as many 4-patches as I can with the goal of having enough to make a 60'' x 60'' quilt.  Into my bottom-less bin of solid scraps I went and started trimming down to 1 1/2 '' strips and then sewing things together.

I'm sewing the 4 patches into 6'' blocks with the secondary goal of having 100 of these pieced together.

How am I doing so far?  I've got 36!   With 53 days to go, I should have 47 of these altogether.  I've likely got enough 4 patches to make 11 more blocks so I think I am in ok shape although I am falling behind every day!

Probably no surprise to anyone who has made one of these quilts in the past, they take a lot of time.... probably more than I anticipated.

The project is very satisfying though so I'm off to make some more blocks!

Have a wonderful day! Patty


  1. How fun for you to be doing this! You picked a worthwhile goal that should be great motivation. Keep going!

  2. Looks awesome! I am always amazed at how beautiful these "simple" patchwork quilts look. Hope you found a burst of motivation to get on track again. That always helps for me :) xo Melanie
