Oh my goodness it’s been a little crazy around here, I’ve been sewing up a storm. Just recently I have put together my 100 blocks into a completed quilt top. Now for the quilting. I have a plan, do you?
It’s hard to imagine months ago this idea would become one of the largest Instagram sew-alongs I have ever seen and that would not be without you sewing along. It’s been so exciting to see all the blocks being made and now being sewn together. In a funny way I feel really proud of everyone who has completed their blocks and the quilts we’ve seen so far. It’s just awesome to see the response to the #100days100blocks and now the #100blocksfinished.
So I need to let you know a bit more about the Finish Along for our quilts.
Lisa from Sweet Little Pretties and I are hosting the finishing component of the #100day100blocks sew along.
