Sampler Blocks.....

Tuesday Sewing Day with the girls added another 92 pieces of fabric to our sampler quilts....

Album 2 (23 pieces)

 A lot of the time is spent cutting up these little pieces

Churndash (17 pieces)

 .. the sides on these rosebuds are only 1" ....

Rosebud (28 pieces)

 ... 6 " blocks and they can get quite fiddly .....

Sickle (24 pieces)

.. so far we have done 25 out of the 140 blocks....

... starting to look like a quilt....


here are some catch up pictures of the 3 different styles.... it's very hard to get pictures that show off all the colours well...










I am learning quite a bit with regard the use of colours for contrasts and how placement of the colours highlights something different in the blocks

Susan and Dzintra are both also making these blocks ... pop over and see what they have done ... anybody else game to join in??????

For my handsewing in the evenings I have got back to my In My Garden stitcheries (Natalie Bird)


I'm working on them by colour rather than finishing a stitchery at a time so it's taking a while to have any done...


Righto, Gotto Go.... I have sampler blocks homework to do!!

Love your sampler blocks - interesting to see how the different colour choices make them look so unlike! Stitching is a very peaceful way to finish the day, I reckon.

Dear Fiona,
your blocks look stunning, wonderful work, and they are so percise, wonderful.
This is a beautiful project, where did you get the pattern from?
Stitchery is cute too.

Lovely sampler blocks. I enjoyed seeing the 3 colour ways.

Wow your quilt is coming along beautifully, love the colours and the design of each block. Your stitchery is a wonderful way to relax after a long day piecing.

Sheila said...

Your sampler blocks are really coming along well , and I must say your piecing is perfect!! Are you doing three of each or are these other colours some elses work ? It looks like a fun project but I must not be tempted :-)
