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
