    I'm building a cache of different sampler blocks. I've found that even though I may like a block, it just doesn't fit into what I want for a finished quilt. I now have 11 blocks made, with several that will wait for another time, but some I'm anxious to put into my current project. I've already shown a few of them, so I'll just show what I don't think I've posted yet. I started to make this quilt for my DIL's mother (who has turned into a great friend), but she is quite picky (Oh, such an understatement!) about EVERYTHING, and I don't think she'd be happy with my colors. So for the first time ever, I am making this quilt for me. Everything I make gets given away, so this is a first. I'm not sure any of the pictures do the color of the fabrics justice....

    Ducky, Are you making the blocks all the same size?

    Yes crkathleen, in this quilt, all my blocks are 12". I will "expand" to a larger size with my next quilt.

    Lovely work ducky, love those colors and the way you've combined them. Yes, I agree you should make one just for yourself!

    And good on you for making a quilt just for you, we're usually last on the list aren't we! :-)

    Those are so pretty. Someday they will grow up to be a quilt. Til then keep up the good work.
