The 100 Day Project

If you follow me on social media, you know that I am participating in The 100 Day Project.  

What is The 100 Day Project? It is an opportunity for participants to select a theme, make and share for 100 days.  The focus is not a fancy finished product, but to go thru the process of making on a daily basis.

I am posting on Instagram (@masterpiecequilting) which automatically shares to my Masterpiece Quilting Facebook page.  

For my 100 Day Project, I'm sketching.  This is something that is new to me and a really big step since in the past I have labelled my stick figures just so people knew what I was trying to draw!  100 days is a long time and I'm already discovering that it takes a lot of commitment.  

I'm sharing my first 5 sketches here. 

I seem to have a floral and fauna theme happening, but I'm not intentionally drawing them.  I'm just drawing whatever I feel like at the moment.  Which is kinda freeing since I work with so many deadlines. 

You can follow along by using #The100DayProject hashtag for all participants or #nancysketches to see what I'm making!

April 2019 Monthly Color Challenge

There is nothing like starting Spring off right by playing with color.  It's wet, cold and gray in Northern Indiana as I write this blog post and I'm desperately in need of color and sun!  Lots and lots of sun!  

After an amazing time being part of Jen's Monthly Color Challenge in 2018, I'm participating in March and April of this year. 

I had a lot of fun making this month's Glory of the Snow block and it uses just two fabrics in my favorite color blue! 

In my post about last month's block, I shared my challenge with making blue blocks from my stash.  Fortunately, I was able to find these two blues that coordinate nicely and really make the design pop. 

For those of you who are new to my page, Welcome!  I'm Nancy Scott of Masterpiece Quilting and you can read more about me here.  I would love to have you follow my blog by entering your email on the right side column.  I'm also active on Facebook or IG: @masterpiecequilting. 

I invite you to visit all of the bloggers this month and take a look at the blocks they have made.
