Over 2013 to 2014 we ran the 100 Modern Quilt Blocks by Tula Pink as a Block of the Month here at the store. Each month, for ten months, customers were mailed or picked up their package of 10 blocks. Previous blog posts were written about it here.
Pulling from the fabrics available in the store at the time, and sticking to a bright palette, I selected for each one and made them myself. However, I have not been able to find the time to sash and finish. However, our customer, Kate Friesen did! And as far as I know, she was the first to do so. She selected a different setting in the book, and I love it! Kate has kindly lent us the quilt to hang in the store. Pictures are below, and clicking on them will give you a much larger image that is sharper.
The quilt was long-arm quilted by Jane Goddard, who used the Circle Play 2 design by Designs by Vicki and white Glide thread.
I’m debating whether to re-run this as a block of the month, and would love your feedback. What do you think? (UPDATE: We are re-running this BOM beginning September 2015. Click here to see details on our webstore.)
