Another Sew Along

Yep, I am a sucker for sew alongs, quilt-a-longs, online BOM's.  Most of the time I finish them, sometimes I quit (like the Farmer's Wife 30's Sampler Quilt a Long).

This one is called The Splendid Sampler.  It is hosted by Pat Sloan and Jane Davidson.  They are releasing two blocks a week.  I am not going to do all the blocks, I am being picky.  I am only doing blocks that I like, and make a quilt with them, only smaller.

Here are the first ten blocks that I have gotten done out the the fifteen that have been released.

This block was about crocheting, and had an embroidery design to stitch, but I just cut out this already crocheted lace piece and stitched it on the back ground piece of the block.

I climbed out of my comfort box and chose some colors that are not something I usually pick for quilting.  A few years, I bought this line, Mimosa and Dear Stella, by Stella designs.  It was the first two lines this fabric company came out with, and I purchased all the SKU's.  

The blocks are 6 1/2" size and should be bright and cheery.
