    I am now counting down to the last post of these blocks. I was asked to do my designs in a Dear Jane sort of Sampler. So as DJs are done with 4 1/2" blocks I used 6 1/2" and 12 1/2" quilt blocks. For those who are doing the 6 1/2" I determined it will take 80 quilt blocks without sashing to make a Queen size quilt. So I am aiming for that number of quilt blocks.
    I will be posting these for 3 more weeks. So the count down to ending this begins.

    The designs will remain on the board as long as Admin allows and I don't imagine they will be going anywhere. So don't worry you can work on them at your own speed or come back to them later on. They will still be here.

    This week I have a Drunkard's Path / A Boston and HSTs / and another HST quilt block. I hope you enjoy them!

    As usual you can find my directions for using my cut down methods to make the "Blocks" by following this link.

    And you will find all of the weeks here in the Topics Lists:
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/virtual...jsp?vsnum=1017

    I encourage all who are working on the quilt blocks to post your pictures so we can share in the journey!!

    As you work through the process on each quilt block you might think about sharing how you put them together. Pictures of your quilt blocks in progress are really fun to see too. so post on the Picture Thread for this Sampler Quilt! I look forward to seeing these quilts done!!

    Just remember CJ that in Libby the center blocks are Bostons not HSTs.

    You could add Bostons to the center 4 squares and it would add a pinwheel to the center. I would do it in the same dk blue or whatever dark you use.

    Thanks Clem I struggled for Henrietta. I think that one is kind of hohum. Libby probably should have had more Bostons in the design. But it is pretty I guess the way it is. I do like Edith. My dad had an aunt Edith who I really liked. She was so sweet. So I figured I would name one after her.

    It is so much easier to name them old fashioned women's names than to come up with traditional type quilt block names. My mind goes blank when I have to try to name something.
