First, I worked on next section of Sample This!
I'm making it twice, once in the colorway shown on the pattern cover (above) and once in the same fabric collection, but in the green colorway (below).
This "sampler" takes a long time because of the many fabrics in each section. Plus the fact that each 4.5" square is three different fabrics! It's going to be an incredible quilt when it's finished, but -- boy, howdy!
This is Marti Michell's "5 is Fabulous" block party at Ruth's Stitchery. In Bonnie Hunter's new book, More Adventures with Leaders and Enders, she recommends making the setting blocks as "leaders and enders" while piecing the main blocks on a quilt. Doh! This one is much easier than the Sample This! quilt, but I think it's going to be someone's favorite when it is finished.
Here are the Quilty Fun rows I finished this week:
That second row from the top is supposed to be autumn leaves. At our Block Party, we decided they look more like fishing bobbers. Anyway, here are all the rows I have finished:
Yes, the rows are different lengths. I decided not to add the end pieces until I have all the rows finished. That way, I can adjust so the rows are the same length.
Tomorrow is the July 1st UFO Parade. Come back to see what the 12 in 2014 Challengers finished this month!
