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!!


  1. Wow they are really starting to come together... love the other colour choices also xxx

  2. Fabulous! I am hyperventilating just looking at those tiny pieces. You are all so very clever. It is going to be a wonderful achievement and look beautiful. Cute stitchery too.

  3. Wonderful blocks and stitchery. I love stitchery with sayings, need to start designing some for fun.
