My quilting mojo has definitely returned. While surfing various blogs last week I came across another sampler that caught my eye. I’ve seen this sampler before, but it didn’t catch my attention until last week. I saw it and fabric colours and combinations immediately started cascading in my mind. That immediately led to pulling fabric bins and cutting and assembling. Over the course of a couple of days last week I had 4 blocks done. It will be a controlled scrappy using blacks, greys, yellows and reds.
The sampler patterns are from Moda Blockheads 4. This sampler started quite a while ago, with a new block being released every week. It’s been going for 18 weeks so there are at least 18 blocks patterns already released. I figure I’ll work on it a couple of blocks at a time. There is no rush. I like the variety of doing samplers and the feeling of accomplishment when a single block is finished. I am going to sew them together in rows of 5 as I go. The sampler blocks are given in 2 sizes, 4 1/2 inch finished and 9 inch finished. I’m doing the 9 inch blocks.
