Finish it up Friday: City Sampler 94-100

Thanks to a Nor'Easter named "Hercules"- our family has been home for the past few days, unwilling to go anywhere in the snow.  Our house is becoming quite clean and I am making quick progress on this WIP:


Nick and I are heading to Colorado on Sunday for a kid-less, week long house hunt.  My initial reaction to these plans was, "Wow, I am going to read a book on a plane without interruption."  I have mentioned that I have been nervous for this move but I think I can finally say that some serious excitement is settling in.  

So for my last pre-trip post, I decided to wrap up the individual posts of each block for the City Sampler QAL.  This QAL has been great for me- I don't think I would've pushed through to the end if I hadn't had some deadlines and external motivation to complete it.

 100

Here are all of them in a nice, hefty stack:

Here's two shots of all of them on my design wall:




Now that I finally figured out how to make a mosaic, here's one of my most favorite blocks:


I can't wait to see this one done!  And I am pretty happy with the unique color scheme- although I don't think it's all that unique for me because when given the chance, I always seem to go for some combination of blue, red, and yellow.

Although it isn't technically finished, I think finishing the 100 blocks qualifies me to link up to Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish it Up Friday.  Thanks for reading!

Your Tula sampler blocks are fantastic! I really love your pictures of all the blocks! The combination of colors works beautifully. Will you sash between the blocks? Have a wonderful time in Colorado (beautiful state)!
