W.i.P. Wednesday: In the Middle

It's hard to believe we've reached the halfway point of the #100Days100Blocks   I've managed to stick with it...  day in and day out I've posted my block of the day.  I'm not going to lie, it's not always fun and there have been several times I've been ready to quit.

The day I missed a seam (thank you @melrosecakes) and had to go back and fix it...

The day I completely hated the block once I made it and had to start from scratch...

The day my iPhone died...

And pretty much every day where my block isn't already done.  I've been pretty good about setting up sewing days to get 5 or 6 blocks done but somehow the next sew day doesn't happen before I run out of blocks so then I have to scramble for a few days until I have time to do another batch.

I did a lot of soul searching to decide if I was going to continue past this point, after all 50 blocks will make a perfectly respectable throw.  In the end I want to see it thru...  I have to finish a book once I start reading it also, no matter how much I'm hating it.

So here goes, on to the next 50:-)


  1. It's easy for me to say this (I'm not the one doing the sewing!), but I think the whole is greater than the sum of the parts, including those parts that weren't your favorite or didn't come together easily. All together, they look pretty spectacular. I'm glad you're sticking with it!

  2. You have to balance the hate against how beautiful it's going to be in the end - I think it's going to be worth it. I'm seeing lots of these on insta these days, but I have to say your fabric/color choices are some of my favorites!
