Tula Pink blocks + a Shout out

I am definitely suffering from Quilting attention deficit disorder this week, which is being exaggerated by severe procrastination. I am supposed to be working on my This way, That way quilt. Instead, I have cleaned my sewing room, and worked on everything but the quilt I am supposed to be focussing on.

The only good thing is I got this weeks Tula Pink City Sampler blocks complete, which I have never done in time. In fact I have blocks 1-9 and now 64-66 :-). I am still loving the fabric choice – Spring House. Here are the new blocks:


Here are the close-ups of the blocks.

Here is a link of the previous 9 blocks I have made.

I will say the week has not all been frustrating. Β I got home Friday night, and I had a package. My first reaction was what did I buy, have I forgotten something?? No, Laura, a wonderful friend I met in blog world, sent me an amazing woolly hat. It was perfect, as it is getting cold here in North Carolina and we had our first frost this week. I was so elated and so taken aback. So here is a shout out to Laura over @ Little and Lots, go over and take a look at her other hats – she has been knitting up a storm.


Hope you all are having a great weekend. I am counting down….Only 2 weeks until the Triangle MQG sewing retreat, 4 1/2 weeks to Thanksgiving, and 8 1/2 weeks to Christmas!!!

    I know “juicy” has gotten to be a word with bad Jersey-Shore-esque connotations, but really. The colors you chose for these blocks are just so tropical-umbrella-drink! Won’t this be a fun quilt to assemble in the dead of winter!

    I’m so glad the hat can keep you warm this late fall/winter. πŸ™‚

      Sorry for replying so late. I have been traveling for work and everything seems to be late πŸ™‚ I love this fabric which is so funny as I am not really a flower print kind of girl but the color just makes me smile.

      My theory is, just when I am in the mood and have time, sooner or later, I will have enough blocks to make a lap quilt πŸ™‚ I really don’t want to put any time pressures on this one – its just going to be a surprise when one day its finished πŸ™‚
