100 Modern Quillt Blocks #1 - 15

Blocks #1-15
I am SOooo enjoying the journey of making these quilt blocks from Tula Pink's book. Knowing that each block is different and I am in charge of choosing the fabrics,
(rather than following a prescribed pattern), I am at ease and loving each step.
Here are Blocks # 1-5
plus a photo of Sophie! She is very camera-shy,
but insisted on sitting in on this photo.
Blocks #6-10.
If you're expecting perfection, you'll be disappointed!
I am a self-learner, never have taken a quilting lesson and
am determined to make myself into an official "quilter"!
Blocks #11-15.
I found a way to help  myself keep the strips organized.
The blocks need a variety of widths: 1"; 1.5"; 2"; 2.5"'
and several larger widths of various sizes.
So, I am keeping them in marks containers for easy grabbing.
As you can see, I have way  more than 15 blocks finished!
I'll be blogging about those in upcoming posts.
Thanks for the comments and suggestions to add more solids and tone-on-tone fabrics.
I took your advice and have added some!
That's what blogging friends are for!


  1. I really like them all and it is going to be gorgeous when it is done. Congrats to you for making great progress.

  2. Kathy, they look fantastic to me! They especially look nice with Sophie and her pretty purple bow! So glad you are having a ball making the modern blocks!
