Splendid Sampler Progress

I just thought I would pop in and share the progress I have made on my Splendid Sampler quilt blocks.

As of today, blocks one through seven have been released.  And so far, I have been keeping up (which is amazing considering all the other quilt alongs I seem to be doing right now.)  A few of these blocks, I would love to go back and make an entire quilt from them!

I did make the decision to make alternate blocks for any block designs with a lot of background fabric.  With the vibrant Kaffe Fassett fabrics I am using, I am afraid all that background will stand out too much in my quilt.  

Block 7 was an adorable embroidered block but I am replacing it with a bonus block that came out in the beginning of the QAL.  I might need to come up with some additional designs depending on the number of blocks I choose to kick out.  I really hope there are not too many!

 Now I am off to sew up my sampler blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.  We are making purple butterflies this month!

I love your Splendid Sampler blocks! I have started the embroidered Block 7, but wish I had seen your idea first. I don't mind the embroidery, it's just hard to find time to squeeze more hand-work in!

I like this block - like a stretched out star

Looks like really good progress. I like the last block too.

Your blocks look great, and such pretty colors. I can see why the embroidered one wouldn't fit in with your others. I like the alternate block instead!
