Week 1 of #100days100blocks

A few weeks ago, I was scrolling through my Instagram feed when I saw that a super fun and challenging quilt-along would kick off on August 17.  The goal of this QAL is to make one block a day for 100 days.  And which blocks you might ask?  The Tula Pink City Sampler blocks!

I bought the book about a year ago and I've been wanting to sew with my scraps so I just had to jump on this one.  If you would like to follow along, just search for the #100days100blocks hashtag on Instagram.

I plan on making the "Skyline" quilt with my blocks and will be using a different colour for each "column", starting with orange.  I even created a Pinterest board for inspiration.

And here are blocks 1 through 7 of my City Sampler:


And here they are arranged in a column, the way they would appear within the sampler quilt:


I'm having so much fun making these blocks and posting to Instagram!  There are already more than 4,500 pictures tagged with #100days100blocks - so much eye candy - so much inspiration!
