Wednesday WIP

I have been working on some sampler blocks:

Last friday was my birthday and I took the day off work and sewed all day long!


I made these sampler quilt blocks. They are so addicting. These particular blocks are the same exact block...only chose different fabrics! I love them.


The pattern comes from my Sampler Quilt called Golden Memories.
I actually made every single block in this quilt however I don't really like the colors and alot of the blocks came out different sizes.
In the picture they look perfect however they are not sewn together right here, they are just placed right next to each other....The blocks do not look this good in real life.


So here is what the instructions look like. You have to pay close attention. There are a lot of measurements involved.

The one on the left is my favorite block however I love the ones I made with gray sashing.
I haven't decided if I want to add pink to the mix. I want the quilt to be cheery and fresh. I don't want it to look like a little girl quilt and I'm thinking the pink gives it a little girlish feel. I do like the lavender and gray together though.
I think I'm going to finish the quilts with gray sashing which makes it more "grown up" looking.
Thanks for looking, I'm sharing this post with :

  1. What a wonderful way to spend your birthday... and the results of that day are charming. I never thought these words would come out of my mouth but I am not sure about the pink!
