Here are my first 3 completed blocks for the Tula City Sampler. I am going to try and get the 3 blocks also done tomorrow so that I have the first 2 of current 8 weeks done.
As mentioned yesterday, I would share additional photos of the architecture and structures at Boone Hall Plantation. Well, here they are 🙂
The house, not the original one though.
Slave Quarters, I thought the Boone Hall Plantation did a great job helping people understand the journey/history of slavery on the plantations, and what it meant for the slaves to have freedom.
Brick work, individual bricks made on the property by the slaves.
Linking up with Kelly @ My Quilt Infatuation for Needle and Thread Thursday.
The Tula blocks look fantastic! I still have yesterday’s post open where I was going to say that as much as cyan, lime and hot pink aren’t top of my favourites list as far as colours go… they really look fantastic in that collection. And they really do. They work great for these blocks too!
Thank you – they definitely are not at the top of my list either, but I am loving how they are turning out.
Lovely! I wonder, where’s the quilt shop trip post? hahaha
I looked and there seems to be one in downtown. We are hoping to get there tomorrow….but who knows the little one just started throwing up…I am hoping its just all the salt water 😦
Oh no! Sorry to hear! I hope it is just the water too and a little rest gets him right back on track.
I just checked this book out of our Library and loved it. I really like the blocks you have done. AND I haven’t been to Boone Hall in years but it is a beautiful place , love the pics.
Thank you….it is a great book…I think I will do the blocks till I have had enough and make something out of where ever I get to. I like that it offers flexibility and you make it what you want it to be 🙂
your City Sampler blocks are so amazing! I love your bright, fun colors. And thanks for posting the plantation pics. I just love touring old homes like that and learning all of the history.
Thank you so much for sharing at Needle and Thread Thursday!

Great blocks, I love the fabrics and colours. That looks like a smashing place to visit too 🙂
Thank you so much. It definitely has been a great and relaxing vacation…unfortunately we go back home tomorrow. I could easily spend another week here
