Tula City Sampler Blocks 1, 2, 3 + Boone Hall Plantation (Part 2)

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 🙂

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. BooneHallPlantation_SlaveQuarters

    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!

      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 😦

      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!
