Oh Scrap! : Splendid Sampler Blocks

With temperatures up in the three digits lately, you can be sure I have been staying indoors where it is cool!  Come on Fall weather!

A bit of that time indoors has been spent sewing my Kaffe Fassett scraps into some blocks for my Splendid Sampler.  So far I have a total of 41 6" blocks completed.




I have sewn up five more of the actual Splendid Sampler blocks since the last time I shared my progress.  There have been a number of blocks that were either applique or embroidery that I chose not to include in my quilt.  I really want this quilt to be mostly pieced blocks.




I did add these four blocks from the Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks Sampler QAL.  I always pick and choose each week the ones I like.












My finished blocks continue to grow on my design wall. I haven't settled on a final layout yet - there are still months of block making ahead!

Love the picture of your blocks up on the design wall! Looks like a black sashing would really make the bright colors in the blocks pop!

Very pretty blocks. It's going to be a gorgeous quilt when you get them all set together.

Sometime I'll have to make a design wall. I sure enjoy seeing what's up on yours. One of my readers called my purchases my "Loot." So I took the idea, embellished it, and posted. It's a teaser of an embarrassing post coming ahead. Thanks for letting me link here. Karen
