Its well over halfway through this year-long project. I’ve been slacking rather a lot with my monthly update posts but I have mostly been keeping on track with making the actual blocks…until the school summer holidays hit! So this is a really big catch-up because I need to give you all the details on each block since week 16 (oops!) and yesterday I made four new blocks to catch-up on the sewing too. Now the summer is officially over, I think its safe to say I was rather over ambitious (and optimistic) about how hot it might get here in Harrogate. Unless we get a seriously hot Indian Summer, I won’t be using reds or oranges on this quilt. On the plus side, so far the blues, greens and yellows have blended really nicely so its not all bad news.
As in previous weeks and months, I am selecting each week’s block at random from Tula Pink’s “City Sampler Quilts: 100 Modern Quilt Blocks” book. The random selection is still very random and has given me the chance to try out most skills and techniques over the last few months.
