100 Days 100 Blocks 2019 begins July 1

Is anyone doing the 100 Days 100 Blocks quilt-along this year? It starts tomorrow, July 1! I had a blast participating in 2018, so I'm taking up the challenge again in 2019.

My fabric pull for 2019 is a selection of yarn-dyed textured wovens from Diamond Textiles
Fabric pull for #100Days100Blocks2019: Tweed Thicket (top) and Nikko III from Diamond Textiles.
The fabrics include the full color gamut of Tweed Thicket and a selection the Nikko III textured wovens. Tweed Thicket is fat quarters and I have yardage in 6 colors of Nikko III. I'm looking forward to making this project all with yarn-dyed textured wovens!

The 2019 pattern is the "Kinship" sampler quilt that was designed specifically for this quilt-along by the quilt-along host, Gnome Angel. How cool is that?!? One of the things that intrigued me about the pattern is the combination of square and rectangular blocks—very interesting. It's geared for beginners and confident sewers and you can get assembly instructions for patchwork, Marti Michell's templates, or English paper piecing [EPP].

Several quilt shops and on-line resources are sponsoring the event with prizes. My friend, Angie, owner of Stitch Morgantown, is again one of the sponsors.

My initial plan is to use Tweed Thicket for the focal areas and Nikko III for the background.

However, I reserve the right to change my mind as the quilt-along progresses (#myquiltmyrules).

There's still time to join in! 
The pattern is available in a digital PDF file for immediate download. Registration, program rules, helpful tools, a coloring sheet and other information is on the Gnome Angel website.

So pull some fabrics and make a sampler quilt... one day at a time.
