25 out of 100: The City Sampler blocks

These are the first 25 blocks of the 100 blocks of the City Sampler quilt. This sew-along—hosted by GnomeAngel—started July 7 (see my blog post here) and we are a quarter of the way through it... making steady progress.
Blocks 1 to 25 out of 100.

I do keep ahead of the Instagram post dates. Blocks 1 through 39 are in this pile. Closeups of each of my blocks are on my Instagram feed at veronica.fiberantics.

It's been a delight to experiment with the various designs and color combinations from Majestic Batiks that I'm using for this sampler challenge. At first, I was following fabric and value placement shown in the required book, "100 Modern Quilt Blocks." Now, I come up with my own color and value placement and I'm finding this more interesting and engaging. It is a more mindful process for me. And because each block is a different pattern, I like the focus on making just a single block from that pattern.

One block at a time... the sampler continues...
