100 Details...

from the ever prolific Sharon Boggon - a project of presenting 100 Details in 100 Days. Sharon challenged her friend Annie Whitsed to do the same and she is!! Then... Allison Aller decided to do a stitch-a-long, doing one of the details every day as they are posted. Sounds like a great idea to me... I'm in! There are a few others joining in also... Sharon has a list on her blog.

Of course, as always, I'm a bit behind since I didn't have any CQ blocks made up. But I had lots of ideas floating around in my brain so it didn't take long to get something put together. Here are the first 3 blocks I'll be using for my "100 Details Quilt."

The centers are hand-dyed marbled cotton and the other patches are various bits and pieces I've been collecting... these are mostly from clothes. Thank goodness I was able to get the fabric organized last weekend... I never would have been able to find the right colors! I ended up with 4 shades of pink, 4 shades of purple and 4 shades of aqua green that blend with and complement the marbled cottons. The cottons are remnants from a dyer in Tucson that I got on eBay.

Tonight the stitching begins!!
