Sampler Blocks.....

The last of the sampler blocks are finished....

Garden Trail

Card Trick (but I think it looks like hearts!)

Maple Star


spot the mistake... I have it out for some reverse stitching....

Arrowhead....

Streak of Lightening
And here they are all together.....


I have put these blocks away to work on later... sashing and a couple of borders to go... I have a December deadline so the pressure is off .............

Righto, Gotto Go.... I seem to have several piles of 'blocks' to be sewn together... 
(much shaking of head....)


editors note....... 


.... see..... I did fix it..... isn't it annoying that I only noticed it when I put the pictures up on a blog post?

Pattern is from Jelly Roll Sampler quilts by Pam and Nicky Lintott
Fabric is Paris Flea Market

detail of other blocks can be seen HERE and HERE

I'm glad I'm not the only one who has done that! Amazing how one's eyes can play tricks on us, isn't it.

That happens quite a lot with photos, it helps to see the blocks in a different context. Won't be long, and you'll have another pretty quilt
