1880 Barbara Bucher Snyder Sampler Quilt Update

It has been a few weeks since I posted about what everyone has been up to over at the 1880 Sampler blog. 
Bettina has already started setting her blocks:
Satu has been keeping up as well:
Both Mary L. and Bettina have pieced their Kite's Tail blocks:

...and did a fabulous job!

  Today I posted the pattern for Greco-Roman Tiles, another very intricate block.
Remember that there is a flickr group here if you feel like sharing your blocks with everyone.
I know I sure would like to see what everyone is doing.
If you are following along, please introduce yourself as well.

This weekend I will be sewing with my DD, piecing a shop sample made from Marcus Brothers' American Valor fabrics collection.  I'll also try to catch up with my CW BOW blocks. 
What will you be working on?


  1. I really have to start making these blocks. They are fantastic. Hugs

  2. The Greco-Roman Tile block is amazing! This weekend I will probably not get much sewing in. The weeds need pulling and the dogs need washing not to mention the laundry, running errands.......

  3. Lovely blocks! Have a great weekend with your DD!

  4. I love the intricacy of these blocks!!! Have a wonderful weekend!! I hope to get time to finish a long suffering UFO!!!

  5. Going now to check that site out, had not heard of it before. Project 99, as my friend used to say.

  6. The girls have been doing some lovely work on their Sampler blocks. I will be trying to finish a few blocks, looking for my sewing mojo at the moment.

  7. I love these blocks! Amazing :-) I am working on a quilt made with Lilac Hill, an Easter table runner, and a Le Petite project in between spring cleaning and driving my kids to activities :-) Enjoy your weekend!

  8. I'm collecting all blocks, perhaps one day... :)

  9. I may be joining you, Cheryl. I canceled out of the BOM from Homestead Hearth. Just too many other things on my plate. But your blocks look so good I'm tempted again. :)


Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. Love any comments you wish to share.
