Sampler blocks

This week we decided to be brave and do one of our foundation pieced blocks for Sylvia's Bridal sampler

Lovely Lyn has proper tracing paper and printed out the blocks for us


  that was for this block ....

Chicago Pavements - 33 pieces
 Cheerful Christine chose this one....

Shoo Fly - 13 pieces
 .. and my choice this week was this one... 

Card Trick - 24 pieces

here are pictures of all of ours from last week (as we had to take them home and finish them for homework)

Tumbling Blocks

Grandmothers Flower Garden

This is my total of blocks so far.... 

That's 10 blocks.... 167 pieces so far....


I am using Civil War reproduction prints (as far as my knowledge of them goes) and there was a bit of confusion with one... which we worked out to be French General...

... so I have homework to make another....  it is a pretty block but I think when you see it with all the others it is quite different...


Righto, Gotto Go.... homework to do..... retreat to prepare for ... woohoo
