Sampler Quilt Update

It's been awhile since I've worked on my sampler quilt, but thanks to the 3x6 bee, i've added to it without having to do anything. plus my hive was the first one done, woohoo! the blocks i received are all so awesome. i can't wait to show them off.
Summer Sampler Series
i made a couple of blocks on my own. i've slowly been working my way through the summer sampler series. i did the Star and Mosaic blocks. i really love the star. the paper piecing was fun and i picked various solids for my block, which i think looks really striking.

for the mosaic i used my new wondercut ruler. i haven't used it a lot but i actually don't really love it so far. it seems i'd be more beneficial in a large HST quilt where you can cut long strips and make a lot of them, rather than needing only a few. on second glance i don't love the background fabric i picked but hopefully it'll blend well in the quilt.

this was my first try with the flying geese ruler. i kept it simple with my fabric choices, but i like the variations of Dutchman's Puzzle with the different colored geese and contrasting pinwheel in the center too. i'll have to try one of those next time. someday i'll do another geese quilt.

  1. This quilt is going to be amazing. It's another one I'd like to try for myself. And in reference to your geese quilt comment, I've been thinking I need a giant gaggle of geese quilt. I heart geese.
