    I have been keeping a file of all the blocks in alphabetical order. So thought I would share these with everyone. You can look through them and see which ones appeal to you or you can look through to see if you missed any.

    I just think it is cool to see them all together. :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    Rhonda, where did you get all these names? Haven't heard of some, but some are really old-timey. My favorite is Cecilia, guess because the white corners & pinwheels appear to be 3D, just waiting for them to start turning..........LOL. They are all wonderful. Thanks again.

    Ok, I've gone through all my weeks, I am missing Clara, and that looks like a Kansas Dugout which you know I like even if your mom doesn't lol. Also missing Leona, which looks like 4 patch, HS. And looks a bit Native American which I also love, and Lizzie Boston Blocks, HS. See You've taught me well!!!! Oh and I have a different Libby week 25, than you have here. I had forgotten some of these. So I'm really glad you put them all together. This would make an awsome sampler if I did them all in miniatures that ended up being a queen size bedspread. Thank you so much Rhonda for all your work on these.

    I discovered that I had missed putting two weeks worth in the alphabet file. so I went back and searched for the missing weeks. One of them I had used Libby again and hadn't realized it. I couldn't put a second Libby in so I had to change it to Lizzy. But I can't go back and change it in the weeks. I will probably have to have Patrice do it for me so noone gets too confused. But if I change it then that might confuse people too. Oh I wish I had caught it when I did it. Oh well! :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

    All of those blocks are just so pretty that I want to make them ALL & I will. (It sure would be easier if someone would just do all the cooking & cleaning so I could just work on quilting :).)

    I live in a little town of 400 people in SE Iowa. It is an old fashioned town and most of these names about 70 to 75% of them are people I knew. Some are family and some are friends I grew up around.

    Vera was a friend of my mom's who lived 2 houses down from us. Flossie was an elderly lady I used to go spend time with when I was in elementary because I enjoyed her company. Clara was a favorite great aunt. Sarabeth is my daughter. Bertha was another great aunt who I enjoyed. She rode and broke horses and rode even after she got Lou Gerig's disease. A very strong willed and plucky lady. I could go on but I won't. I have memories of alot of these ladies. I have always been fascinated with the old time names. There are so many V names and that is so much fun! Vera Violet Velma Viola all ladies I grew up around. And there are more Vs.
    Verna was my grandma. I used Leora and she was my other grandma

    I also asked for and received help from other people with names. I looked up lists on the internet to find old fashioned names. To me quilt blocks and old fashioned women's names just go together. Reminds me of all the quilts I have seen with signatures of the quilters who made that quilt. Naming the quilt blocks with women's names was a lot easier than trying to come up with quilt block type names like broken dishes or road to Georgia or some such.

    Rhonda, I went back through all the weeks, and I found Leora, but I still can't find Clara. And I think I would have remembered that name because it was my DH X-wife. Could you post that one again. Because I really like the block, even though I don't like that name.

    OOOOPPPPPS just found it. It's a senior moment. It's on this last week. Wk 28....it was a rough night of slelep last night. l lol

    Our Clara was a sweet lady who was tall and a bit ungainly but she was the nicest person you would ever meet. She was a big part of my life growing up as she and her DH Floyd( my dad's uncle) were more parents to my dad than his own were. I always think of checked gingham table cloths or embroidered table cloths and sweet tea potato salad and cookies and all sorts of goodies. They lived in the hills of Missouri and it was long dusty roads and I loved visiting them.

    14 rows of 6 blocks each = 84
    I counted the rows twice and it is 14 rows.

    Rhonda, I just noticed when I enlarged the sampler blocks that you have Adrianna & Sarabeth, but what about Rachel? Will she be upset if she catches this, or did I miss her name somewhere? I don't want you to be in trouble w/ your #1 Granddaughter. LOL...........!

    Actually Nicci or Niccole is my #1 Granddaughter LOL and she doesn't have an old fashioned name so I didnt' use it. I should have used my DIL's middle name Helena but I don't think I did. I did use Rachel but would have to go see where.

    Edit: I guess you are right! I thought I had used hers but I guess not! Oh well. She won't notice.

    LOL That's ok! I rarely see her anyway. I only have 2 granddaughters but I also now have 1 granddaughter inlaw and 2 great granddaughters so our ratio of girls to boys is a little better.

    The pictures were a Sampler Quilt Along I did last year. It is available for anyone who wants to make them.

    Right now I have a Quilt Block Swap going that you can pick any block I designed in any of my tutorials or ebooks or classes on here. This list of blocks is the easiest place to find a lot of them in one place.

    I just put all the quilt blocks with their layouts on a page on my website. You can see all of them here:
