I ran across The 100 Day Project last week
and realized it was excellent motivation
for me to work on one of my projects
for the Unconventional and Unexpected QAL.
I have always loved this quilt
in Roderick Kiracofe's book.
My version will feature a mix
of solids and reproduction fabrics.
It will also be smaller than the quilt in the book
with a layout 8 blocks wide x 10 blocks long.
Here is the information on the inspiration quilt.
This photo shows my nearly-final fabric pull . . .
And this is what 80 sets of strips look like
when sorted using my paper plate system.
This is that same group of 80 sets of strips
but shown from a different angle.
I can't wait to get started on this one
which I have named Optic Strings.

My goal is to make a block a day
during the next 100 days --
and if I get the blocks done in time,
I will include the layout process
as part of my 100 Day Challenge.
Each Monday I'll share an update post on my blog
with the blocks from the previous week.
Here's to making progress!
