Side One Complete
March 10, 2015 § 8 Comments
Well… that took a little bit longer than I had anticipated. The first side section of my Random Sampler is now done. Whew! I decided to stick with the loosely imagined garden theme that was going on. I had originally made three Basket blocks and one Wagon Wheel block. So I made another Wagon Wheel and another Greek Cross block. (The first Greek Cross block is going to live in another section of the quilt.) Then I filled in with some square-in-a-square blocks from my Merry Merry Snowman quilt that were discarded when I decided to change color themes. I also made some Butterfly blocks from Lori Holt’s book Quilty Fun and a Pinwheel block that I drafted in Electric Quilt. And finally, I found some leftover Half-Square Triangle blocks that are so old that I don’t even remember where they came from. Maybe they were trimmed off of something?? Who knows. But they worked nicely to fill in that space next to the Greek Cross block.
I’m thinking that finishing this thing may take a little longer than I had originally anticipated. But aside from that, I am happy with this minor finish.
Next week I’m moving on to side two. Which seems to be the sparsest side of the quilt. And it feels like it might taking on a textile theme. Or maybe a hobby theme? So who knows what I will come up with.
How are your Random Samplers shaping up this week?
