The Tula Pink City Sampler: 100 Modern City Block Quilts
The Coastal Quilters’ and friends May 2017 retreat is in the previous blog entry.
Many members of both Coastal Quilters and Mt. Battie Modern Quilt Guild are making Tula Pink’s City Sampler: 100 Modern City Blocks.
Many people brought their blocks to the retreat.
Pictures were sometimes challenging as the light out in a hallway lined with design boards was “iffy” light, especially at dusk. I probably brightened this picture too much.
Karen Martin has FINISHED all her blocks. We spent some time arranging them–and now she will decide how to set them. I love the limited palette Karen used.
Another limited palette from Lynn Vermeulen–who also worked on and finished challenging black and white/bright color foundation paper pieced blocks:
Becca Babb Brott:
With this last picture, I am realizing I did not get pictures of Nancy Wright’s or Vicki Fletcher’s work. I get pretty focused during a retreat, so missed getting up and taking pictures. Sometimes though, people take down their work and start on other projects, so the opportunity to take a picture is lost.
I did not bring my Tula blocks to this retreat and need to do my May blocks. I am also realizing I need to put them up on the design wall to see how they are playing together.
Next retreat: October 2017.
