Tula Pink's City Sampler Quilt top FINISHED!!!

Well after much sewing I managed to finish my City Sampler quilt top in time to link up with Sew Sweetness! Not on purpose either! All my crazy ridiculous prints in one quilt. I chose to sew them on point with black and without the sashing. I like it much better this way. There are 98 blocks shown here. The other 2 will be used on the back somehow. Hope you love it as much I do!

My mom (she's funny) said "each block really is pretty ugly by itself." Haha...so true but when they're all crammed together aren't they pretty? Even the "ugly" blocks look fab!

  8. It's stunning with the black. I know I'm repeating what others have already said but "on point" really sets it off. Great job!

  11. It's funny but being on point somehow calms it down. Beautiful colours and very nice against the darker border. Well done!

  14. LOVE it -- congrats on getting finished. This is a project I have avoided so far but all these link ups are making it quite difficult.

  15. I feel so much better after seeing your quilt and your mom’s comments. I think some of mine are sososo ugly, but maybe there is hope after all. Once all 100 are sewn together, they will just blend in. Am so glad to see that it turned out to be a manageable size. Thanks for sharing this link with me. Back to the rectangles today. genie

  17. I absolutely LOVE the way you set the blocks on point without the sashing! And the dark grey is one of my favorite solids, is it Kona Charcoal or Pewter by chance? Oh, now I really want to start making these blocks. Awesome job!

  18. Yep, crammed together they look beautiful! Love them on point with the dark border!

  19. You nailed it, it is beautiful! Congrats on getting it done!!!!

  20. well, maybe your mom is right about some blocks, but what you did was break them into color families and group them so you mostly get to revel in color. Good job to finish too.

  25. oh. my. word! this quilt is so gorgeous. The black really sets off those colors. That's the cool thing about scrappy quilts- when the quilt is all finished and it looks like one huge confetti toss, they look so cool!

    Thank you so much for linking up with Needle and Thread Thursday!

  54. Your Tula Pink quilt looks great! Setting the blocks on point was a smart choice - really gives the quilt a different feel from the regular gridlock version.
