    Come along and join in and make a beautiful sampler quilt!

    You will need a 2 1/2" template so if you don't have one just let me know. Send me your postal address by pm! PLEASE dont' post it here!!

    I will be posting one quilt block per week. To give you an idea of what my quilt blocks are like - You can find the first Sampler Quilt Along here:
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/virtual...jsp?vsnum=1017

    I use my cut down method which is where you cut fabric and sew it together and then cut out a square from the center. I call these units - "Blocks" I know not very original!

    You can see my Blocks directions here:
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/virtual...jsp?vsnum=1020

    ---------------------------------------------------------


    Ok This week I am going to use the Boston Blocks.

    Here is the link for the Boston Block directions
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-38879-1.htm

    If you have any questions just let me know!

    This Quilt Block is named Ashley. You will see the quilt block and then you will see the layout of the blocks. Pay attention to where the colors go and how the blocks are turned.

    If you change the values of the colors or put them in differant places than I did it will change the look of the quilt block.

    So I hope this is an enjoyable journey for you all! And of course there is no time limit.

    I will only follow along because as you know it can be hard for me to actually make the blocks with this busy home I live in. I can't resist seeing all the blocks you come up with.

    How often do you post a new block? I will pm you address and give it a try. Do you give us an idea of fabric requirements?
