Nine Sampler Blocks

Amy Friendquilting, sampler12 Comments

I am up to nine blocks now for my sampler quilt. I am aiming for 12. Yesterday I worked on block #237 Honeymoon found on page 26 of 5,500 Quilt Block Designs.

I added another new fabric to the mix, Metro Living Circles in Turquoise.”

I also made another simply designed block to work on maintaining that balance I am going for. This block is found on page 16 and is called #88 Patience Corners.

I used two fussy cut squares this time. I have finally stopped debating fussy cuts or not. I have decided that each block will have a fussy cut piece in it, or more than one, but that they may vary in location. I just like the way that print unifies the others and find that using it in the blocks makes me happier. So, that’s it!

This time I added one last print, Art Gallery Oval Elements Golden. The darker mustard dot is a good match to the Kona Mustard. I do not plan to introduce any new materials in the last three blocks. I just wanted to make sure that there was variety because I find scrappy quilts so much more interesting!
