Sampler blocks

Filed Under Show & Tell 

Show & Tell!

There’s an outreach group within my quilt guild, The Allstar Quilters for Kids, who meet every two weeks and make cheery snuggle quilts for kids in need in our community. I’m sort of an honorary member; I don’t regularly attend the sew-ins, but I do try to support them however I can.

One of the members sent out a call for help making blocks for a quilt that will be used as a fundraiser for the group. I took a couple that had appliqué… because… well, you know :).

Here are my blocks, hot off the needle!



They’re part of the Spring Garden Sampler Quilt designed by Lydia Quigley, offered as a block-of-the-month by many quilt shops. Here’s one, Stitchin’ Heaven.

Can’t wait to see the whole quilt! It will most likely be part of the quilt auction that takes place during our guild’s annual quilt show in February.

    Kay I love your fabric choices! Especially the star points and those greens in the bunny block – I’m currently in a green loving phase ;)

    Hi Sarah! How you doing? Actually, the fabrics came with the patterns, it was done up by a shop. Can’t take credit, but glad you like!!

    Lovely Appliqué – I think the bunny is so cute!
