But . . . I managed to get my Splendid Sampler blocks done a little early so I still have them all ready to share for Splendid Sampler Saturday ;) First up is the Local Quilt Shop block designed by Jane Davidson. I had so much fun picking all of the blues for this block, and it really got me cleaning through my blue drawer because I randomly decided to do all Art Gallery fabrics. I pretty much made it to the bottom of the drawer and then decided before putting it all back that it would be helpful to "organize" it a bit since my blue drawer was overflowing a bit ;) So I actually sorted the blues into stacks of Navy, Blue, Teal/Aqua and Light Blue. I think it will really save time down the line when picking fabrics, and I just love how neat and tidy it looks now. And it kind of caught on as I have now sorted the green drawer as well and have plans for the pink and red drawers :)
And next up is Iowa designed by Sherri McConnell. I really enjoyed putting this block together and it was nice to have a "fast" block after so many intricate ones. And I just love the wonderful geometric nature of the design. I think yellow is my hardest fabrics for really getting good contrast, as I don't have a lot of "dark yellow" scraps. Guess I will see how it goes ;)
And those are this weeks Splendid Sampler blocks. Looking forward to next Saturday!!!
And Happy National Quilting Day!!!! Let's all Celebrate with a little Quilting Fun!!!
