I have been working on a lot of other projects, so I have fallen behind on my blocks for The Splendid Sampler.
I had cut blocks 9, 10, 11 and 12 a few days ago, so they were ready to sew "whenever I had a couple of minutes" - I just never did! Or....when I did, I chose to do something else :)
Today I finally just sat down by my machine and started....
Block 9 "Local Quilt Shop"
This was a fun block, I really like house blocks, but I don't think I ever made one before! One of many advantages to The Splendid Sampler - trying new things!
Block 10 "Iowa"
This one reminds me of a frosted donut, or sherbert..... My daugther loves it and wants me to make her a pillow with one giant Iowa block.
Block 11 "Crocheted Thoughts"
This one obviosly still needs the crochet/embroidery. I am not sure how I am going to do that, So I am leaving it like this for now..
I still need to sew blocks 12 and 13. But I feel like I am caught up for now. I'll have some time to sew over the weekend - but I have a special block planned. So the sampler may have to wait until next week..
