30 blocks in 30 days quilt along and bloghop and #scrapvortex100dayproject

So if you haven't heard there is a blog hop going on right now.  Brought to you by  Carla over at creatin' in the sticks 

It is based on her December 2017 blog posts where she posted one simple 10 1/2 inch block per day for 30 days for her 30 blocks in 30 days quilt along. 

Each day in April will highlight the use of each block from December in this hop. For the hop I will be posting my use of block #27.  And yes, I will be posting it on the 27th.

I made all of the blocks in the quilt along and put them together into this quilt.

My block for the hop is the bottom almost left hand corner of the top picture.  Its the gold
and white block. Broken Stripes.

This quilt will be going to one of the organizations from this years Hands 2 Help Charity Quilt Challenge 2018 ( see the button ). It measures in at 50 x 60.

At the bottom of this post I am listing all of the participants for the Hop.  Start checking them out, there are some awesome ideas popping up.

I have decided to participate in the IG 100 day project.  I've hooked up with #scrapvortex100dayproject   It is being coordinated by @wendyfranczak  using the scrapvortex pattern from Amanda Jean over at Crazy mom Quilts  The link takes you to her posting regarding this project and the links to her original tutorials.

                                                                          This is day 1

This is day 3

I'm thinking at about a half hour per day = 50 hours which should give me a pretty decent size top at the end of 100 days.   I know I'll have days where I put in more time and days where I won't be near a sewing machine so I am keeping track of my daily time so I don't get totally off track.

When Amanda Jean first posted her Scrap Vortex quilt along back in June 2015 I had great visions of finishing a top but got caught up in other things along the way and instead of a finished quilt I ended up with very pretty placemats.  I'm hoping to do better this time.

  1. I started Carla's blocks and never finished them so I'm happy you did. It looks beautiful! Sometimes life gets in the way and my big intentions don't quite make the finish line. I did manage to finish both my quilts for Carla's blog hop and I'm totally enjoying seeing what everyone is making.

  2. aweseom start on your scrap vortex!!

  3. I love a Scrap Vortex quilt! You’ve made a good start, and I hope it’s going well. Don’t beat yourself up if it isn’t. It’s a good long term project too.

  4. I like your version of the day's block, and your full quilt from December. I was so glad this was done a second time. December was so busy, and I didn't find it soon enough. The Scrap Vortex is looking great. Mine was started in 2016, and I have some really big chunks, but still need more, because I want a double-bed sized quilt. It's about at throw size now. Best of luck with yours!

  5. You've had a great retreat, it seems!! So much accomplished... and my granddaughter would fight you for that Wonder Woman postcard!! What an awesome surprise!!


  6. I really like your new decorative designs! it's beautiful so much and good idea on site.



Thanks for taking the time to leave me a message.
