WIP - An update

I really wanted to get something updated on where I stood on the projects I am working on.  I can easily forget or get side tracked along the way.

Here are my Moda Blocks that I have been making.  I am two blocks behind but really want to get those done by the next meeting in Mid July.  Seems doable- 5 blocks in one month.

Here are all my Tula Pink Blocks I have done so far.  I really like them and they are a cute size at 6.5".  We'll see if I am still saying that another 20 blocks in.
I then caught up on our Guilds Bee Blocks

 I have a few things to get done and I will be traveling for work next week so the goals for the finish along not looking so good.  I think I should be able to get the binding on the Easy Street quilt tomorrow night or Sunday night.  I picked it up from the LQS and it looks great.  That quilt is really heavy too!

I am linking up at Lee's for WIP - did you see her great new pattern she released!  Very cool!

100 Blocks - Tula Pinks City Sampler

I have been trying to get a little sewing in between the yard work and working.  I haven't had to travel for work in close to 3 years but this month gone eight days - that really cuts into the sewing time! 

I did start the 100 Days of Summer Tula Pink Sampler quilt.  I am using my stacks of Kona from Kona club with fabric I like from my stash.  This is going to be anything goes in the rainbow category.  I have no decided on a layout yet.  I like making them and they are pretty easy except when you have to rip them. You really need to be precise on the 1/4 inch seem allowance and I tend to go to narrow.  

I agree it is easier to pick out a few, cut them all and then piece them when I have time.  I am done with everything I had picked out and cut so now more selections.  

I have a few more to go in the first section and hopefully I can get them done this week.

I am also picking up my Easy Street Quilt tomorrow night so hopefully I will get some pictures of it and get it posted this week as well.  I am excited to see it quilted and get the binding on it.

I have Moda Club tonight and did get my 3 blocks done.  I am two behind in that but loved my three I did.  I need to get pictures of those yet and post them this week.

I have been checking out the Let's Get Acquainted Blog hop and hoping to pick up a few new tips along with finding some new blogs to look at.

I am linking up at Charm about You for the Let's Get Acquainted Weekly Link Up.

Thanks for stopping and here's to getting some sewing time in.
