I only have one finish this week, but I also have 3 more blocks to show you from the Tula Pink City Sampler Quilt Along that I'm doing. First I made a doll quilt for a swap that is going on this month. It is supposed to be for doll quilts, but all of us participating are planning on using the quilt we receive as a wall hanging. Most of the ladies in the swap indicated that they prefer modern quilts. I hope this is modern enough for them! I don't have a lot of experience making modern quilts, but I love this one! The pattern is my version of "Northern Lights" by Jaybird Quilts. I made it using the 5" half hex ruler from Missouri Star Quilt Co. I am tempted to keep this & make another one for the swap, but I won't!

I missed blogging last week, so I should have a lot to show, right? Not so much! Summer has caught up to me and I haven't done as much sewing as I would've liked. I'm doing the Tula Pink City Sampler Quilt Along, so I have 9 blocks to show you. I'm sewing them in "Happy Go Lucky" by Bonnie & Camille along with coordinating Kona solids. So far I'm the only one in the quilt along who is using this fabric and I'm one of the few who is using a light/flowery fabric combination. A lot of participants are using Tula Pink fabric and her style couldn't be more different from mine! See for yourself here: http://www.flickr.com/groups/citysamplerquiltalong/ First up are blocks 1-3.
