It's a block party.....


This week I promised myself some me sewing time with the machine so I could get on top of the Splendid Sampler blocks.... it's not a race but I fear if I get too far behind I will give up on them!!


Block 46 - Twirl Time by Sarah Maxwell

Block 50 - Flights of Fancy by Joanna Fgueroa

Block 53 - Whirling in Circles by Deb Roberts

So that was my 'piecing' day ......


.. then I started on applique ....

Bonus Block - Top of the Hill by Pat Sloan

Block 52 - Cone Flower by Pat Sloan

Block 49 - Summers Gift by Karla Eisenach

Bonus Block - Flip Flops  by Jacqueline Steves (- or Thongs - or Slip Slops - or Jandles)

... and that made up my machine blanket stitching day! .....



... then some foundation piecing....

Block 48 - Whim by Faith Jones

... then some English Paper Piecing... which was several evenings/mornings.....


... but I got it finished last night...

Block 51 - Bee Happy by Katja Marek

... and of course the latest block is out so I'm still not caught up but I made really good progress.

I love that there are so many different skills I am having to work with in these blocks - a true 'sampler' quilt...  I'm learning lots about colour placement too and living with when I didn't make the best of the block.

Righto, Gotto Go - off to print out the newest block ....

  5. You've made some major progress! And you've inspired me to make a cone flower!! I know what you mean about getting behind. If I get too far behind on a project, I tend to just give up. Your quilt is going to be beautiful.
