The quilt top is finally ready and I cant tell you how happy I am. Not just because its the next logical step in quilt making but because this is where all the 100 blocks come together which I together before Halloween last year along with the #100days100blocks quilt along gang on Instagram.

This quilt top is huge…its 90X90″ and I have no clue what to back it with and how to quilt it on a domestic sewing machine. Here it is lying in all its majesty on my sofa:)

As of now, I am just basking in the happiness of the Quit Top being ready.

The final set of 10 blocks is here 🙂
I am so happy to have completed the project in a disciplined and timely manner. And 100 days is not a short period…to do something daily and posting it on Instagram, with people all around the world, commenting and keeping everybody motivated has been an amazing learning and enriching experience.

Now looking forward to putting them all together and making the quilt top 🙂

Aha! So the journey which started with a single step is almost coming to an end…the penultimate set of blocks are ready! But I am having withdrawl symptoms. I have been used to the regular schedule of making and posting a block everyday so it seems like 10-days down the line I will be starting into nothingness.

Am also excited to see the end result when I can display all my 100 blocks in their Ombre setting. Hoping it all falls in place.

Simple math tells me that the 100 blocks are taking me somewhere close to a week of non stop sewing. Phew! thats a lot of time…just tht its broken down into smaller chunks of 30-45 mins on a daily basis and hence the quilt blocks are getting completed on time. A slow, focused,sustained, discipline over the last 90(soon to be 100) days.

Its a lovely feeling to be progressing at the desired pace!

A block a day seems to be working till date and I have the last ‘Score to meet’ after this set. It has been a fun journey and I have learnt so much along the way. Be it precision cutting or careful sewing…be it trimming, pressing at every step or being cognizant of the seams, everything has been a learning.
Starting from the unintentional wonky blocks to the bright looking, perfectly square blocks now, much has been achieved and much remains.

I am really looking forward to the completed quilt. Although, at this stage, am not sure whether I want to add sashing or not!

I will just complete the blocks as per the desired dates and then decide on the Quilt layout.
