Traditional Tuesday

It seems that I am a bit of a soft touch when it comes to making Sampler Blocks! The one over on the blog 42Quilts is no exception. Jennifer Dick, since last September has been offering weekly blocks, which can be modern or traditional. Modern Monday offers a new slant on the traditional blocks - which is very interesting and well worth considering. However, I have chosen to do the Traditional Tuesday option - which, yep, you guessed it - is very traditional.

I am using 1800s reproduction fabrics with mostly reds, murky creams and blues with a splash of green and purple/grey thrown in for good measure. The fabrics were purchased for a different project that I had intended to design myself, which I could never seem to get around to starting and then when I came across this project online, I knew that the fabrics would be perfect.

Block 1 - Crossroads

Block 2 - Log Cabin - not yet made.

Block 3 - Rail Fence

Block 4 - Churn Dash

Block 5 - Sawtooth Star

Block 6 - Mosaic

Block 7 - Mr Bones - not yet made

Block 8 - Pinwheel

Block 9 - String Block - not yet made

Block 10 - Snowball Variation

So far I have made 7 blocks out of 15. There will be more to come in the next few weeks as I catch up after the holiday madness.

Hmmm - which reminds me, I must catch up on my Just Plain Nuts and Golden Memories blocks too - samplers are just too addictive!
