I have finished 8 of the 12 blocks for the Summer Sampler Series. This has been a great challenge for me. I am having to work differently than I usually do when creating a quilt. I usually cut cut cut until I have an entire top cut out and then I sew and sew until it is complete. Since we are given a block on 3 days of the week I have to cut a little, then sew a little. It's working out fine though.
This is my block #5 called the Star.
Here's block #6, the Arkansas Traveler.
Block #7, the Six Pointed String Quilt. I was afraid to trim this one down to 12.5" because I think it's jacked up. It's not exactly square if you know what I mean, so I decided to leave it a little wider until the end of the series when I get ready to sew all the squares together. This block was really fun for me to make. I loved just grabbing some strips and sewing them together and see what I ended up with. If my block is too jacked up to use I definitely won't mind making another one.
Block #8, called Lucky Pieces. I just love the aqua and plum combination in this block.
Now I have to start thinking about what I will do to enlarge this quilt a little. I think I'm going to make some extra squares and add to it along with added some sashing and corner stones. We'll see though.
