First 9 Blocks for #100days100blocks2017 and a Finish

Here are the first 9 blocks I have made for the Instagram challenge #100Days100Blocks2017:
This is using Tula Pink's book City Sampler and the details on the sal can be found here: http://www.gnomeangel.com/sponsors-prizes-100days100blocks2017-2/
 I am using a lot of Tula Pink fabrics but find myself grabbing from other prints in my stash too.
 
I also took a few more pictures of my now finished Colfax County quilt...still a little amazed I managed to finish this queen size quilt with it's fussy little 1 inch finished hst's.  So glad my friend Cheryl encouraged us to work on this one together...her king size version is a masterpiece but I am quite happy with my "smaller" one!!  I had a local long-armer, Kay Fee, do the quilting and am quite happy that the piecing is the star on this one.
 Working on the binding...
 Finished quilt but had to wait on my quilt holders...
 Then, yay!  Able to get a picture thanks to my quilt holders extraordinaire!

Your Colfax County quilt is just beautiful. I love the fabrics. Those are some tiny half-square triangles. Congratulations on this gorgeous finish.

You are making some pretty blocks in the sal too.

Your Colfax County quilt is gorgeous. That's a Primitive Gatherings pattern right? I may want to do one in red. I love how yours turned out. Yay for your quilt holders. The Tula Pink blocks are great too.

Wow! You are keeping up with the blocks quite nicely! The Colfax Country quilt looks beautiful. Love the close up cosy photo as well as the light and shadow in the outdoor photo. What a great finish!
