I had a great Labor Day, choosing my labor of love to be sewing on my Sampler Spree quilt. I got it all joined and boy am I happy about that!
Here are the last blocks that went into those last few weeks before making my rows. Week 8 with more butterflies making their fancy flight across the blocks.
Week 9 I think my favorite was the angled one at the bottom of my line up of my new 10 blocks. It is block #60, Market Square.
And to the finish line on week 10! So much playing every week with light and dark, balancing of pattern vs solids (in my case Thatched) and having fun with the little butterflies. This was a whirlwind journey of block making.
The laying out of blocks with my trusty companion, Roxy. I needed to do a little rearranging from my original plan to get my lights and darks balanced.
It took me a week (in between other things) to make the double sashings. And then on Labor Day weekend I got it fully joined and ironed.
Next up will be longarming but I have a few other things to do first. Hopefully I'll be sharing the end result with quilting and binding soon!
Many thanks to Susan Ache for her lovely book, wonderful instructions, and engaging project that has made this summer busy and fun!
