I have a new participant in my 1880 Sampler Quilt Along.
Mary from Quilting in OZ (her blog) has joined in and caught up with the rest of us in no time.
And Jill from PA surprised me with this picture of all her SAL blocks. They are pieced and she is playing with the setting. She did a fantastic job.
She made duplicates of some of the blocks that she originally didn't like her color choices for, and then decided she liked them after all. I try to tell my beginners, who learn to piece by doing a sampler quilt, to wait until the end to make changes to blocks.
I should listen to my own advice.
I cannot tell you how many times I will remake a block until I am happy with my fabric selections!
All 50 siggy blocks are done and ready to be autographed.
I think I was dreaming of Spring when I chose the fabrics for these fellas.
Today is the monthly meeting of my SSQSG and we are exchanging signature blocks.
We are also expecting a much anticipated guest.
I'll be back to tell you all about her visit if she makes it.
Hopefully, she will bring some of her exquisite quilts to share!
Lots of applique, ribbon embroidery and hand quilting!
