100 Days 100 Blocks 2020 with Paintbrush Studio Fabrics

For the third year, I'm participating in the 100 Days 100 Blocks 2020 sew-along. This year, the majority of my fabrics are from Paintbrush Studio Fabrics [PBS Fabrics]. The quilt pattern is called "Make the Cut." The blocks finish at 6 inches (yep, ya learn how to nail your 1/4 inch seam!).

Working with solids and prints
I started the 100 Days with two fat quarter bundles from PBS Fabrics, but quickly added these lovely Painter's Palette solids (this is the Jacquie Gering bundle)...

... and some neutrals (April from the Birthstone series). The April birthstone is the diamond.

I'm taking this Sew-along opportunity to work with both solids and prints, which is not my norm. I will say that the solids from the Painter's Paletteand all the PBS fabricshave an extremely soft feel to them! The solids, in particular, are much softer than some of the other solid fabrics I have in my stash. This is certainly going to be an enjoyable patchwork process!

Block progress
These are the first six blocks with prints from Flutter and Food Trucks. Both of these fabric lines have fun images—ice cream cones, donuts, burgers and butterflies—for fussy cutting, and they are size-appropriate for the 6 inch blocks.

My blocks are pieced in batches, however, I post daily photos on social media per the guidelines of the sew-along. Several blocks were pieced or cut out before I got the Painter's Palette solids. So when the solids arrived, I started incorporating them... in Blocks 9 and 12. 

Make the Cut Blocks 7 - 12.

Blocks 13 through 16 have incorporated more solids with the prints.

Should the mood strike, I may re-make a few of the earlier blocks and incorporate solid fabrics. Time will tell.
