Sampler Spree QAL - Week 10

Written by:

Make these last blocks and you're finished.  You've made 106 sampler blocks in an assortment of evenly distributed colors.  You'll only need 100 blocks for the Give And Take setting in the book, so you can make more for a bigger quilt, include the leftover blocks in your backing, or use them to make a tablerunner, a wallhanging or pillows.

Orange!

When I saw Chris' blocks, I knew I wanted to share them here.  I never did figure out why Facebook was "automatically declining" some posts, but Chris had several that were removed.  I restored them as soon as I saw the notification.  In all the weeks, Chris never complained, or even questioned why it was happening.  She just kept making beautiful blocks and sharing them.  

Wake Up.  Be Kind. Be Amazing.  Be Grateful.  Repeat.  

In my book, that's Chris.  

And we have a finish.

The light blue and white sashing is a perfect addition to these happy, colorful blocks.

Are you close to finishing?  

Close or not, I hope you're enjoying the Sampler Spree quilt, and Susan's wonderful process for these blocks.

A big, big, BIG thank you to Susan Ache!  Her plan was different, creative, a lot of fun, and yes, genius.  Working with her on these blog posts, and chatting with her about colors, fabrics, and inspiration was a pleasure.  I love how she divided these blocks and worked in color groups.  Picking fabrics was easier, and it meant that there would automatically be a good distribution of colors through the quilt.  This was so much fun... we might need to do something like this again.  (Just saying.)
