100 Blocks 100 Days from Becca's Crazy Projects

And that makes 100 blocks. This was wonderful adventure. Now I get to play with block placement until I get something that works. I have no idea how it will all come together. 

If you are on the fence about trying out this pattern you can check out the great images folks are sharing on Instagram under #100days100blocks2021. Finished quilts are now showing up so you can see how people are putting these blocks together.

Spot the mistake! Not that I will fix the offending block. Only a couple more weeks and it will be time to start playing with settings.

100 Blocks 100 Days from Becca's Crazy Projects

Sometimes when I make a block I wonder if I have missed an opportunity. I'm still not sure how all of these are going to become one quilt but I'm looking forward to it.

100 Blocks 100 Days from Becca's Crazy Projects

I approach each block individually. I pick a single fabric and work with it to make that block. I'm not sure how these are going to go together but I'm hoping it all fits together.

100 Blocks 100 Days from Becca's Crazy Projects

I love using up little pieces of leftover fabric to make these blocks. I'm still pulling from scrap bins and I think this will be a great quilt. I post these every day (except that one day when I forgot until the following day) on my Instagram. I tag all of the photos so you can easily find other makers.

100 Blocks 100 Days from Becca's Crazy Projects

I'm still loving each of these blocks. The finished quilt will be a wonderful combination of so many different fabrics I've used. Get your own copy of the Kinship: 100 Block Fusion Sampler and join in the 100 Days 100 Blocks quilt along project.

100 Blocks 100 Days from Becca's Crazy Projects

I suppose I should start looking at layout options. Some of these blocks would be great in a one or two-block quilt. It's great to add them to my block library.

100 Blocks 100 Days from Becca's Crazy Projects

Week number two of my 100 Days 100 Blocks quilt along project.
I'm continuing to work through the 100 blocks. I've been pulling fabrics from my scrap bins. I'm sure this won't make much of a dent in my collection of scraps. 

I'm not going to add individual photos to this post. I also will only update with a collage in the future. If you want to see any of these in greater detail you should check out my Instagram feed. You'll get updates daily for this project, assuming I can keep up. I ...

100 Blocks 100 Days from Becca's Crazy Projects

I'm going to try to do a weekly update for my 100 Days 100 Blocks quilt along project. This is the first of those updates. 
Last week I finished blocks 1-4. 



I'm going very scrappy with this quilt. I'm using squares and strips I have left over from other projects. I have no idea what layout I'm going to use when I finish them all. It is an adventure!

Odds and Ends from Becca's Crazy Projects

Where does the time go?
I picked up this fun machine quilting book a couple months ago and I keep telling myself I'll actually write a review. Maybe next month. 
I succeeded in getting block number one of 100 Days 100 Blocks completed. Wish me luck I can stay on track. That's it for today. Enjoy your weekend.

Challenging Myself from Becca's Crazy Projects

Every time I make a sampler quilt I tell myself I won't do it again. 
Along comes 100 Days 100 Blocks and changes my mind before it has even begun. Image from Gnome Angel's website. I will admit I may have been influenced by Hunter's Design Studio. She shared her version on Instagram and it is delightful. I've been trying to prepare by cutting a few blocks so I'm ready to sew on day one of one hundred. I'll try to keep up. My guess is I'll post to Instagram as I finish ...

Change is Hard (work) from Becca's Crazy Projects

The opportunity to buy another long arm from another member of the quilt community came up and I had to jump. Ever since I took a class at Virginia Longarm I've known the Innova is the machine I wanted.
We disassembled it, loaded it into the truck, and brought it home. After disassembling my Empress, we put all the pieces into the same space and I got to assembling. 
This frame is slightly larger than my old one. The Empress frame maxes out at 10 feet, this one is 11 feet long. 
Sometimes assembly was slow-going. Like when I ...

A Stellar Day! from From the Strawberry Patch...

Yesterday I did something that I have wanted to do for DECADES- I grabbed a few like minded friends and we set off for an adventure down the road; to learn Chrismon making! The results of three hours of tedious work are shown here. This is the "New Gold Star" (the five pointed star announces the birth of Christ), a prophecy from the Old Testament told that "there shall come a starĀ  out of Jacob,
